Someone wrote me that they discovered a glitch that occurs with the new search experience. Here's what I found. I type in "COBRA FA-NICD 4.8v" to eBay's search bar, and it brings me back no items with Cobra in the title, but brings back items from all kinds of diverse categories - with the common denominator being they all have the number "4" in the title! Look at these two results for example (nothing to do with Cobra):
FRONTLINE PLUS + 4 dog puppy KIT 0 - 22 lbs 6 month USA
20 PINK 3 X 4 Glossy Satin Wedding Favors Bags Pouches
I tried a few more searches. When I type in "COBRA FA-NICD 4.8" (leaving off the v at the end), same thing.
But when I type in "COBRA FA-NICD 4." (leaving off the 8 and the v at the end), it brings back Cobra items!
Yet when I search for "CANON A590 8.0 MP," it comes back with Canon items in the results (as you would expect in normal search conditions).
Can anyone figure out what is going on here? And if you have numbers in your titles, you might want to check them.
And, oh yeah, what had this person even more perplexed was the fact that the Shopping.com ads at the bottom WERE correct. Shoppers searching for Cobra batteries using that specific model in their search term would not find eBay listings, but would find Shopping.com items.
