 Search Tips

Basic Search – Single Term or Phrase:

Definition:  Searches that contain a single word or phrase that are performed from the Home Page or from the “Search by ZIP” page. 

Example Search:

Using this example above, your search results will include ads that contain both “Travel” and “Trailer” within the Title and/or Description.

Advantages:  A straight-forward search that looks for a single term or phrase.

Disadvantages:  You may get listings that are not specifically related to what you are looking for.  For example, “Travel” may be found in the Title and “Trailer” could be found in the Description.  Or, both terms may appear in the Description, but not as an exact phrase.

Complex Search – Multiple Terms or Phrases:

Definition:  Searches that contain a multiple words or phrases that are performed from the Home Page or from the “Search by ZIP” page. 

Example Search:

Using this example above, your search results will include ads that contain both “Travel” and “Trailer” within the Title and/or Description.  Your search results would also include ads that contain both “5th” and “Wheel” within the Title and/or Description

Advantages:  A straight-forward search that looks for multiple phrases at once.

Disadvantages:  Similar to the Basic Search, you may or may not have search results that are specifically related to what you are looking for.

Advanced Search – Custom Content Filtering:

Definition:  Basic or Complex searches performed on the Advanced Search page.

Example Search:

Using this example above, your search results will include ads that contain the exact phrases of “Travel Trailer” or “5th Wheel” in the Title of the ad when they meet the following criteria:

  • Must include at least one picture
  • Exclude ads that match these exact phrases but also contain “broken”, “damaged” or “needs repair” in the Title and/or the Description
  • Must be listed under the “Travel Trailers” sub-category
  • Must be between $10,000 and $25,000 in Price Range
  • Must have a Vehicle Condition of “New”

Advantages:  Able to define specific criteria to make the search results more meaningful

Disadvantages:  Search parameters may be too narrow which could lead to omitting ads that are of interest.   

Here are some examples of how users could use Customized Content Filtering on the Advanced Search Page:

  • Search Title and Description or Search Title Only
  • Requires listings to include at least one picture
  • Require an exact match for your Search Terms
  • Exclude unwanted terms from your search results
  • Specify the desired Category or Sub-Category
  • Specify the User Type(s) to include in your search results (Individuals and/or Professionals)
  • Filter by Price Range
  • Search by State/Region or by ZIP code.
  • Category Specific Criteria determined by the Category and Sub-Category.  Some selections with in-depth Category Specific Criteria include:
    Jobs (and all its sub-categories), Vehicles (with more precise filters on Cars, SUVs, Trucks & Vans), Real Estate (with more precise filters on Homes For Sale) and Rentals (with more precise filters on Apartments and Houses For Rent).
