Re: Direct Results loses hits when radius bigger than 200 mi

Nathan, Thanks for the response. Yeah, I understand to get around Google and CL rules it's all a compromise, I can see why you had to group areas together, etc. I'd assume there are other areas where something like this is happening - where the user's desired zip code is a major metropolis, but when...

Re: Direct Results loses hits when radius bigger than 200 mi

Nathan, "Never mind, got it." So am I to understand that you were able to recreate my example and the problem? I would attach a screenshot but I don't seem to be able to paste it in this forum. "And presumably the Detroit checkbox is still checked on both pages." Are you referring to the "Include Ne...

Direct Results loses hits when radius bigger than 200 miles

I've observed that Direct Results loses hits when I expand the radius greater than 200 miles. Using Chrome and Win7. Example: 1. Search zip code 48380 (Milford, MI just west of Detroit about 40 miles) 2. Search for "1963 buick riviera" in All Sale/Wanted using Direct Results 3. Use 200 mile radius (...

Not finding a listing that I know exists?

I often search for old cars by searching a particular year in the search field (in Cars & Trucks section) and nothing else as that should find all cars with that year in the title. But I found it doesn't, and I'm wondering why? Here's the example: for Columbus, Ohio: Search for "1967 Grand Prix" and...

Re: Combined Search not finding old post found before

Nathan, Thanks for the reply. Does this mean that old ads that are renewed (i.e., old enough to have expired) won't be found by SearchTempest ever again? (Unless the seller reposts instead of renewing?) I understand that most ads that have been put up long enough to expire aren't particularly valuab...

Combined Search not finding old post found before

I've been following this listing using combined search for about 2 months (monitoring seller's price reduction) and SearchTempest has found this listing every time until today.
