If there is one thing I love about the internet, it is that it is full of great seller listings. It is hard to find new books, especially if you have limited access to the internet. Amazon is a great resource for finding sellers.
I have to admit that for a long time I found amazon sellers a little too easy to find because of their relatively large selection. In fact, I was pretty much a newbie when I started using amazon for the first time. Once I found a seller, I would open my browser, type in the name, and amazon would bring up the product listing. Unfortunately, after several weeks of searching, all of these sellers were either no longer around or no longer existed.
Thankfully, after a lot of searching, I started finding a lot of sellers that were not Amazon sellers, but only had Amazon links on their pages. Today, I can search through the thousands of listings amazon provides. In order to get to the actual product page I would have to type in the product name. And then it would be too hard to find the actual product page when I open the link.
Some of the sellers I’ve checked out have a website that is an amazon seller. I hope to see more from them soon.
Just because a seller has an Amazon link on the page does not mean that all of the products they sell are available on Amazon. Often these sellers sell items out of their personal websites.
Of course, there are more complicated ways to find the product page. If you search for an item by it’s name, Amazon will provide the links to all of the Amazon sellers that have that item. But this doesn’t get you the product page. The product page is still accessible as long as you have a specific Amazon account.
This is where the confusion comes from. Amazon lists all of their sellers by name. But if you search for something by its name, Amazon will also provide search results for all the various sellers that sell that item. Some sellers have more than one product page, and some do not. The only way to see all of the sellers that sell a specific product is to have a specific Amazon account. If you dont have a specific account, you cant see the seller’s entire page.
Because the search engines don’t need to know the name of the seller, the search engine gives the search results for the seller that you are searching for. So by searching for the seller, you have to search for the seller that you are searching for.
I think there were two reasons for the lack of a general search function. First, we tried to make the search function as user friendly as possible. We wanted it to be as simple as possible. The second reason is that the Amazon listing system is the most confusing to use. Its search box is pretty easy to figure out, but for Amazon it is completely buried in the middle of the page.
Amazon is probably the most confusing place to search because you have to scroll through the whole page to find it. It is also the most crowded. You can’t really search for things that are in the middle of things. Like, there is a search for the ‘Ebay Warehouse’ and it is in the middle of all the other listings.
