e Boo Boos – Misspelled Items and Auctions on eBay: Bargains can be had on eBay when people misspell the items they’re listing. Since they’re not spelled right, no one finds them, and no one bids on them.
Proving that no hole goes unfilled, here’s
the first (see comments) a search engine devoted to finding misspelled items on eBay.
e Boo Boos is a unique search tool used to hunt down misspelled auction items listed on eBay. eBay does not contain a spell checker and many auction items go unnoticed because nobody finds these items when searching using the correctly spelled word.
Don’t forget Fat Fingers http://fatfingers.com/
certainly not unique, the following guys have been doing this for a while
don’t know which came first
I can vouch for that too, I beleive that fat fingers was one (if not) the first – I think it has kind of been surpassed now by many others, the one I use is http://www.auctionpixie.co.uk/search/.
There is probably somthing better out there, but I use the other tool on that site too, so its convienient.
