Cassini eBay search - What do you think?

Hello to all,

Recently I’ve seen a lot of talk going on about the Cassini search on eBay. Some are good, some are bad.. As usual… So I would like to hear your opinion about the changes they made?

I found this blog post, it basically says that the listings with HTML are getting penalized, because the Cassini engine only runs through the part of the description text and it concerns me a little bit. As we use html headers and other elements before the actual description and there is quite a lot of HTML involved in the design (categories, promo boxes, image gallery etc), is it true? Will it be fixed? How we should go about it?


Buuu... Are you scared? Shouldn't be.

Howdy Artur,

I don’t think that should be a concern as the the devs have taken years to make this search engine and stripping HTML is easy
