For at least the last 24 hours, I can't get the items I search for to sort according to date posted. I tried the site on my laptop and my phone. I get the same results - no order to the search results regardless of what sort option I pick. The order doesn't change. I haven't seen anyone post about it anywhere. Is anyone else experiencing this?
Once upon a time; it was easy to peruse the listings, for items of potential, personal interest. Since the, "improvements"; nothing has been as easy to narrow down. Used to search listings on a daily basis. Haven’t even tried, in a few months.
The search still isn’t working. Some effort was obviously made but it is arguably worse, now, than previously. Entering something into the search field results in a list that is loosely related or unrelated to what was searched for.
I honestly think they should completely back out any of these new "search" changes. Based on behavior, it seems like they are attempting to add in some sort of "similar results" logic to boost additional ad potential. However, it is causing users to feel very confused and definitely not confident that they are finding what they are looking for.
---- For example, last several days I have been trying to search for "wireworld hdmi". I’m getting back some wireworld hdmi results, but I also get Audioquest cables, KEF speakers, B&W soundbar, John Denver, etc. etc. etc. It’s providing a feel that audiogon is a waste of money and that posting a "for sale" ad is not going to return any results. Jeez, I just want to buy some "wireworld hdmi" cables. That's all I want!
