I was searching for something else and came across this Bing result for eBay Money Back Guarantee.
Normally when this verbiage is displayed "We would like to show you a description here but the site won’t allow us" indicates the page is blocked by a robots.txt file.
If this is so, why would eBay block it's page that tells buyers about their buyer protection program?
"If the item isn't exactly what you ordered eBay will make it right by covering your purchase price plus original shipping on virtually all items"
Maybe there is a problem with scamming buyers taking advantage of sellers with eBay's good graces. Reminds me of this deal on an $1175 used car.
Don't make sense to block a page from search crawlers unless there are problems.
Just my two cents worth as usual.
Nice catch, yeah CEO John Donahoe and Mark Burke know there are issues with the buyer policies and buyers scamming sellers out of their eBay Items. eBay Inc losing market share daily because of failed policy changes, inconsistent programs, and alienating their sellers is just what eBay does to conduct business. I don't know why the FBI hasn't announced any investigations yet on this company. They are really destroying Mobile eCommerce. I hear someone where on the grapevine that eBay Inc may hire Hubcapjoes aka Crazeenydriver to become their next CEO. lol
Another search using Google says the page is blocked by robots.txt. There is a second identical result under the 1st with an English language declaration so it could be an attempt to get rid of duplicate content.
The proper way to remove a page is to log into the company's Webmaster Tools account. Under Google index there is a link to remove indexed content. It's similar with Bing and YooHoo.
I have found that once a page is already indexed with Google, blocking it with a robots statement only removes the pages description and replaces it with "A description for this result is not available because of this site's robots.txt – learn more."
Oh well.. Just my two cents worth as usual.
I think by now it's worth more then 2 cents doc. eBay doesn't have enough staff on hand in the US to have them log into their webmaster account at google. I would assume they have an agent at google working for them so they have no need to login to any account.
I love how eBay Inc uses a statement of "Declaration of use" within the robots.txt file telling robots they can't index the content.
