Online auction site eBay is now king of the castle when it comes to e-commerce sites, according to the latest figures. And Amazon's a dirty rascal.

The Nielsen/Net Ratings report claims that eBay's visitors have grown by more than four million in March to reach 22.13 million. This figure makes the site bigger than previous heavyweight champion Amazon, which came in with 22.08 million, having attracted just one million more surfers last month.

eBay apparently also gets more page views out of its audience and they spend longer snooping about. There is also the added bonus that eBay actually makes money while Amazon has had to change its strategy in an attempt to pull itself into the black.
