My Craigslist Item Does Not Appear in Search Tempest

Post by graybrown » Fri Mar 28, 2014 8:57 am

Hello,

I searched the forums for this topic and did not find the scenario I am seeing exactly.

My Boston posting to sell a boat (http://boston.craigslist.org/bmw/boa/4366916587.html) on Craigslist does not appear in Search Tempest.

My search criteria for Search Tempest is "Marshall Sanderling" within 400 miles of the ZIP code 02492.

Can anyone see what the issue is?

Our default results mode is powered by a 'Google Custom Search', which doesn't catch every result immediately. Most likely this is simply due to an indexing delay. Occasionally though, it also misses results entirely, for reasons only Google knows. You can find more info in this FAQ answer: http://www.searchtempest.com/help/general#missing. As it says there, if you switch to the Direct Results mode, you should see every matching post, including yours.
