SearchTempest Missing ads?

Post by bumgahdna » Wed Mar 23, 2011 9:13 am

I searched Antique Chandelier from Dothan with 400 miles radius. There was an ad in Huntville al named Antique Crystal Chandelier that was not picked up by SearchTempest. Just notifying in case this is an unknown bug. I love your website and use it often. Thanks B

Are you using the default 'Craigs Results' results tab, or the 'All Cities Together' tab?

Craigs Results comes straight from craigslist, so the results you see should be identical to doing the same search at CL. Check whether you've made a typo, or entered a price filter or something like that.

All Cities Together is powered by Google. Unfortunately Google's index is not perfect, so it will not get every single result. It does get most of them though, and is faster to use than the default mode. Using more specific keywords can help with this one.

If you still can't find the ad, please paste the URL of the SearchTempest results page you get into a reply here. Also paste the URL of the craigslist post that's missing. Thanks!
