cant find my ad in results

Post by jrags » Sun Apr 07, 2013 9:30 am

Listed an ad and when my buddy or myself try to search for the ad, it is not there on the ST page

Here is the link to the ad
http://fresno.craigslist.org/tls/3727495404.html

Here is a search result link from ST for the keyword "unisaw" which appears multiple times in the ad as well as the title.
http://www.searchtempest.com/results.ph ... subcat=tla

ST page for "rockwell" keyword
http://www.searchtempest.com/results.ph ... subcat=tla

Thanks for the program and the help

Essentially the problem is that SearchTempest's default search mode is powered by Google, and Google has not yet indexed that page. You should be able to find the ad using our Direct Results or RSS Feeds options, as described here: www.searchtempest.com/faq.php#missing

I did what you said and NO results.
I can find my ads using CL's search but not yours.
How are you of any use if my possible customers cannot find my stuff?

If you've already tried the suggestions I linked to above (www.searchtempest.com/faq.php#missing), please send me the url of your search page as well as the ad you're trying to find but can't. I can't tell you what's wrong if I don't know what you're trying to find. ;)
