To locate ads on the system that contain specific keywords, you may enter
the terms you are looking for in the Keyword Search text box located at the
bottom of most pages throughout the system.
Keyword Search (Any)
To perform a broad search of all ads posted, enter your search terms and
select the option to locate any ad that contains "any of my keywords". This
is the simplest of all searches and may return a large number of matches
depending upon your keyword entered. Further narrow your search by selecting
a specific category. For best performance and accuracy, omit words
such as and, or, it, the, etc.
Keyword Search (All)
To further narrow your search, you should select the option to find "all
my keywords" in an ad. This will only return ads which contain every keyword
you have entered into the keyword text box area. For example: Entering the
keyword Honda would return all ads which contain the keyword Honda. However
by entering the keywords Honda Accord, only ads containing the keywords
Honda Accord would be returned. For best performance and accuracy, omit
words such as and, or, it, the, etc.
Keyword Search (My Exact Phrase)
If you know exactly what you are looking for and want to find a specific
phrase matched in an ad, enter the phrase your are looking for and select
the option to find My Exact Phrase. This will return results that
contain only the phrase you are looking for. For example, entering the
phrase The Blue Moon would only be found if it is entered into the ad
exactly that way.
