Solve a problem
You can refine your search and customize and organize your search results from the left side of the search results page. In some cases, you'll see a shortcut. This shortcut will appear with a magnifying glass icon in search results. You can use the shortcut to refine your search. If you still get too many results, try using the Advanced link at the top of the eBay home page.
To get more results, you can search within sellers' descriptions as well as in item titles. Select the Include title and description check box, located below the search box, and click the Search button again. If this doesn't work, try using different search words. Experiment using 2 or 3 different words at a time so you get a variety of results.
You can expand your search to search within sellers' descriptions, as well as in listing titles. Select the Include title and description check box, located below the search box, and click the Search button again.
