Search Listings

  • Search listings allows you to find listings by words found in the Title or Description.

  • The default search filters are All Categories and for the Entire Country, but these options can also be used to filter your search results:

    • Category
    • Price range
    • Business, Personal or Both
    • A City and listings within a 5, 10, 25, 50, 100 or 250 mile radius around it
    • Show only Free
    • Only listings with Photos
    • Only listings with a Video

  • Wildcards and Excluding Words

  • A very useful way to filter your search is by using wildcards with your search words; question (?) matches any character, and asterisk (*) matches zero or more characters.

    An example would be using the keywords 2015 Chevrolet Truck. This would return listings that have the words 2015, Chevrolet and Truck.

  • If you used 201? for the year then would get Chevrolet Truck for the years 2010 thru 2019.

    20?? would return listing for the years 2000 thru 2099.

  • If you used Chev* then the listings would be for Chev, Chevy, Chevrolet and so on.

  • You can also exclude words by using a minus (-) character before any word. So a query like 2015 Chev* -Truck would return any 2015 Chev, Chevy, Chevrolet ... and doesn't have Truck.

  • Saved Searches

  • Once you've searched for a listing you have an option to Save this Search.

  • When you save a search you can change the Name, and have the option of having Notifications sent to you whenever a listing is posted that matches your search criteria.
