Craigslist results don't display

Post by larryp76 » Fri Mar 21, 2014 8:24 am

Results for craigslist won't display as they did day before yesterday. Only ebay and oodle display. Deleted files and cookies from Explorer running with Win 8. Can't load latest explorer without getting Win 8.1. Don't trust Microsoft enough to load 8.1 as I am too dumb to fix problems it will bring. URL as requested follows;

Hi Larry,

Thanks for including the link. That helped. The issue is actually the keywords you're using. You're searching for
"cb 350 Honda"
(with the quotes). Those quotes tell the search engine that you want to find exactly that phrase, in that order. Since most people would write "Honda cb 350" rather than "cb 350 Honda", it's not finding anything. Instead, I would suggest this:
Honda "cb 350"
That way it would match any ad containing both "Honda" and "cb 350", wherever they show up. To get a bit fancier, I expect some people will also write cb350, so you might even want to do this:
Honda ("cb 350" | cb350)
which searches for both versions at once. See here for help with writing your own advanced keywords strings: http://www.searchtempest.com/faq.php#keywords
