Greetings!

I am new to these forums, but I would like to mention that my website.

Roots Vinyl Guide is tracking site all vinyl music sales on eBay. It is designed to help record collectors determine the price of items in their collection.
http://www.rootsvinylguide.com

It is similar to PopSike and Collectors Frenzy, except the tracking is more extensive and up to date (automatically updates every few minutes). On Roots Vinyl Guide, you can also filter and search explicitly by music genre, which neither of these other sites provide.

It was originally built to track only record sales in the category of Reggae & Ska, but it started tracking all categories about a month and a half ago. It does contain the auction sales for the last ~4 years of all Reggae & Ska record sales on eBay.

I'd love to hear your opinions about the website. Please let me know how you think it can be improved to better suit your needs.

Thanks for reading this.

-- Jah Chicken

How exactly did you manage to do this? Did you use the eBay API? What language, server, and database technology do you use?
