    The4x5Camera.com

    Many, many of you are probably aware of this site, but I just found it recently, perhaps there are some like me that didn't know this was out there-----a neat place to find lots of things one might need.

    Really? Looks like another eBay affiliate spam site with no real content. Yours?

    Mmmhm. Just a bunch of eBay links; no real content otherwise, and nothing an eBay search couldn't do. Thanks for the link, but no thanks.

    I'd have to admit I got a little excited - who wouldn't love finding out that they had somehow missed out on a great site dedicated to LF? Alas, I must echo the sentiment of the last poster.

    I must claim ignorance, how does one know this is not a legitimate site?

    eBay has an affiliate program that pays web site owners to drive customers to eBay. Most of these sites do very little more than post a bunch of eBay links wrapped in niche (like large format) keywords to drive the site up in Google search rankings. There are two main characteristics to look for in eBay affiliate spam sites:

    1) Prominently displayed eBay links that usually form the bulk of the site "content"

    2) Actual site content is minimal, and often plagiarized from Wikipedia or other sources. The intent is to bundle search keywords with the eBay links, rather than educate.

    ebay affiliate sites are advertising, not spam.

    I don't particualrly like them either, but...

    Personally, I'd be a lot more interested in soemthing more like 6x17LargeFormat.com

    Here's another.

    I've come across 3 others today. They mean that articles for sale on Ebay turn up far more easily on Google & other searches, thus p[potentially boosting Ebay's turnover.
