If the person looking for the item that you have listed clicks "search title AND description" and you have it mentioned IN the body of your auction then they will be brought to your auction BUT any of the terms can be picked up in any auction and it brings up A LOT to pick through. Plus, not a lot of people do it for that very reason, it's not narrow enough for some.

General Search Tips Try different search words There are many words to describe any item. Imagine which words a seller might use to describe the item you're looking for. Try several different options and combinations -- but use just two or three words at a time to be sure you get a variety of results. Use specific words instead of general ones For example, a search for Beatles poster will return fewer, more-targeted listings than a search for Beatles. For a closer match, specify a date, colour, or brand For example, to find a particular Barbie item, don't just type Barbie in the search box. If you're looking for a Barbie dress made in the 1960s, enter: Barbie dress 196*. If you want only red dresses, type: Barbie red dress. Remember: be specific and narrowly define your search! Try US spellings If you're searching using words with Canadian-specific spellings such as colour or centre, you'll find more items with the corresponding US spellings (color, center). Search titles and descriptions to get more matches Search always looks for your keywords in the title of the items for sale. Click on search titles and descriptions under the search box to also search item descriptions. You'll get many more results. Search worldwide for items or search just within Canada. On any search box on eBay.ca, you have the option of searching for items located in Canada only, or opening up your search to items located in other countries. You can also toggle between items available to Canada or located in Canada using the link located near the top right corner of any search or browse results page. Add or remove the letter "s" for more results For example, you'll get two different lists of items when you search for diamond rings and diamond ring. Try your search with and without the final "s". Be careful when using and, or, and the eBay's search engine searches for and, or, and the just like it would any other word. Use and, or, and the only if you're searching for items containing these words, such as Diana Ross and the Supremes or Truth or Dare Don't use extra punctuation Only use punctuation in your search if you expect it to be in the item title or description for which you're searching. Examples include t-shirt, N-Sync and Dr. Watson. Consider browsing If you're not searching for something specific, try browsing through the category listing pages for surprising discoveries. Try Want It Now If you’re looking for a hard-to-find item, tell millions of sellers what you’re looking for by creating a Want It Now post.

I thought only the first three words get searched in the title and body..??

Has anyone ever did a google search with your title?

See if you can find your listing?

Onlt those who have a website like Auctiva etc. get into the top listings.

ok, so it good to use the sub-title for ebay, so people can find your listing as long as you list the first 3 words in the discription thet best describes your item?

Are you talking first three words of the title,sub-title or description?
I know for a fact the when searching for a car with a sunroof, if you search EB motors and enter sunroof and check search item description that you will get results even if it isn't in the first three words.

They do have fields though that it might show up in giving you the match.
