Make Your Own eBay Most Watched PageHere's a simple form to create a most watched eBay auctions list like the one on MyTinToys.com. If you haven't seen that watched auctions page, here's a link that opens in a new window:
With this form, you can put as many categories as you want onto one page, but let's just do one category first, then I'll show you how to add more categories to your page.
Before you create your own most watched page you'll need the number for the category you want to watch. To get the category number go to eBay's Category List, and then go to the category or sub category you want to watch. (Sub categories are found in the left navigation pane of main categories.)
The numbers beside the categories on eBay's category list page are NOT the category numbers. That number is the number of active listings in the eBay category.
The category numbers are found in the URLs of category.
For example if you are looking at the Collectibles: Transportation category, you'll see this URL in your browser's address bar:
The category number is the numerals in red above. They are between catZ and QQ in the URL.
Here's another example showing the place holders in blue and the category number in red:
Once you know the category number, enter it and the name of the category into the form below. Then hit submit to create your own most watched items page.
Many of the articles and free reports here on IWantCollectibles were originally sent to readers of my Antiques and eBay Newsletter. Not all articles make it onto the website, and readers also get notices of free reports and special offers.
