ebay search problem

So almost every day I ran one particular e-bay search looking for an item. The search was two words long. Every day I got several thousand results. I usually just checked the "new items" tag so I didn't have to go through all of the results.

Starting last night I got 0 results. I thought it might just be a glitch. Same results this morning. Is there something I should be looking for in my advanced search options?

I should also note I've ran the same search in a different browser too.

I thought that you were going to say that every day, you search, and keep finding these things over and over that you want, and you just don't have enough money to keep getting them...

Maybe you are searching in a specific category and do not realize it?

Maybe ebay has put you it one of its "beta search test groups". They pick users at random to "try out" new search engines. I've found that sometimes the ebay search will act too smart, and put you in "ticket mode" if it thinks you want tickets, or "auto part" mode, if it thinks you want auto parts.

There was an announcement a while back bout category changes so I'd guess that's it. There is some quirky stuff with saved searches anyway. I have one I created on my phone (that works) but is always tagged with an Info notice of "This search returned 0 results"

If you were getting that many results you're doing it wrong though. If you want a smarter one LMK and I can probably refine it.
