Hi Alan -

I think they made a change behind the scenes to "help all of us"...

As near as I can tell, their main search - instead of searching for the keywords as entered - now just tries to guess anything related to what they think you are after - probably in hopes of making more sales...

Extremely frustrating to me, too, since I'm used to using a lot of specific keywords and excluded keywords to narrow down my searches...

Hi Howard, I believe you are right on the money with that one. I think its going to hurt more than help sales. I sell things on there like alot of people do and if no one can find it how will it get sold? Like my dad always said...they are constantly trying to "improve" things. Maybe if enought people complain...something will be changed. I remember the first internet search engines....if you typed in anything that had the word "the" in would get 2,000,000 hits with the word the in them. G1355 had mentioned the discussion over at the tractor talk forum (by the way, thank you G1355) on the same subject. I had said if I sell a tractor on ebay should it be listed in the shoe catagory? It came from a farm and was around a cow....a cow has a hide that is made into :)
