An initial analysis from SearchEngine Journal estimated eBay saw a 33% drop in Google search traffic following algorithm changes, and SEO firm Wordstream estimated eBay had "lost around 75%" of its keyword terms from Page 1 of Google's results.
Like others, Sebastian expects eBay to adapt to Google's changes. He also sees the company buying more of Google's product listing ads (PLAs).
