TonyAlmeida Tue 13-Jan-09 15:10:06

oh I cant possible say.... blush

HelenBurns Tue 13-Jan-09 15:16:21

Have you spelt it right

Or, if you're ticking the brand box on the right, did you fill in the brand in the little details bit when you listed them?

HelenBurns Tue 13-Jan-09 15:16:49

sorry left

TonyAlmeida Tue 13-Jan-09 15:42:51

the brand wasnt on the drop down menu.
so i wrote it in

HelenBurns Tue 13-Jan-09 16:44:26

Then it will come up under 'other'.

TonyAlmeida Tue 13-Jan-09 16:45:06

But if i search "snootyclothes"(for eg) everyone elses DO

HelenBurns Tue 13-Jan-09 16:47:21

Ok back in a wheee while.....<<jumps headlong into dark pit which is ebay>>

TonyAlmeida Tue 13-Jan-09 16:57:00

oh no tis ok now they do if I say "trousers".

HelenBurns Tue 13-Jan-09 16:58:13

Right, there is no brand option for Kew. So how are you searching for everyone else's items?

Are you typing Kew into the keywords box?

if you have got the word kew in the title it'll come up with a keyword search. If it is in the brand box, you'll need to type kew into the seacrh box under 'other'.

does that make sense?

TonyAlmeida Tue 13-Jan-09 17:00:06

yes. Thanks you are kind.

HelenBurns Tue 13-Jan-09 17:00:45

Brands and keywords are different kind of searches.

keyword means someone used kew in their title or description.

Brand (box on left) means they ticked a brand when they listed iyswim.

Hope you are sorted!
