I have just launched a beta version of a new project, Zebo is a bit of a experiment to see if its possible to rank a website with little or no original content. I am taking feeds from many online retailers to see if this is possible.
Within 24 hours of launch it was a pleasant surprise to see google crawling the site like mad, before the day was out google had also updated its index with over 200 URL’s which to be honest I was a little shocked by the speed this happened.
Time will tell if these pages will rank for anything meaningful but I will start tracking the SERPS now to see what happens.
The beta version is only using eBay as a data feed but a lot more feeds are planned so very soon I will also be able to start doing price comparisons.
This is a joint project between myself and Thomas Harvey, a SEO consultant who has vast experience of ranking large scale ecommerce sites.
