I have listed a baby boys timberland top. However, when I search baby boy timberland, my item does not appear.
It has hardly had any views despite bring immaculate.
What have I done wrong?
If anyone can tell me how to link I will link to the item
Thanks in advance

if you have only just listed it, it can take a few hours to be visible.

I listed it days ago and only tried searching for it when it had no views.
I tend to put lots of description in my title and post on I phone- could this have something to do with it do you think?

I don't think so. What is the item title?

I have had this happen before but only with newly listed items. You could contact e-bay, somewhere on e-bay you can talk to someone live so they can answer your questions straight away.

Let us know the title or link to the listing, will see if we can see it when we search.

Double check your listing (in My Ebay) and make sure you haven't made any spelling mistakes. Easily done - I should know after accidentally listing some Very Hungry Catepillar stuff the other night hmm.

Ok, my title is 'genuine Ralph Lauren boys polo shirt. 12-18m VGC 99p bargain!'
When I search 'boys Ralph lauren' it's not there!
Only an hour left and no one is going to see it! Similar items are going for around £10-15, mine is stuck at £3.

Yes it is! I'm scooterfootynutty! I wonder why it doesn't come up in my search?
Thanks for looking for me.

Yeah, I can see it too, it's there, you never know a last minute bidding flurry might be on the cards.
