I just did a search for "Dunhill pipe" on ebay. A whopping two items were found.

I must've done something wrong. Is that or real!?

Could be the category you are searching in, or you could have inadvertently ran your search while on a particular sellers page. Either would produce minimal results.

Try using the search box at the very top of the page MisterE.

Interesting, I just did a search and came up with 265 - so either they sold 34 pipes between our respective searches, or there is something funny going on with eBay's search algorithm.

Yeah - ever since Monbla started buying Estate Pipes, the number of available Dunhills has been dwindling.

It's funny, I hit this very link and only 3 pipes show! Mad

Is it possible that someone put a block on my search results??

I find it very odd, because it is a regular saved search. I went directly to a couple of well known estate dealers pages and found a few individually, but the search engine elimitated anything that says dunhill pipe.

Fǿk.

Mister E - I think it's due to your location and the fact that some shippers will not ship internationally. I've noticed this before on Ebay. Since many won't ship outside of the USA, they don't show up on your search results.

I tested this theory a few weeks ago by buying an estate pipe from Ebay.uk. for a friend over there. I put his (UK) address in place of mine and the pipe was shipped to him. After this, I forgot about the address thing and searched for a Realistic Pro-2004 Scanner and only 2 came up. But it wasn't until I changed my regular ship-to address back to my own that my search results went back to normal. I then immediately searched again for that same scanner and got over a dozen results in my search.

So yes - location definitely has something to do with it...

Okay, I'll check that, but I've never received anything down here. All ebay buys go to my moms house in the US. Maybe it got reset or something....

Ok, I signed in and voil! 256 matches. I guess I had to be signed in. That's odd because I never had to before. Ebay's getting like facebook- tracking your movemets and such. Mad

Yup, working fine here Mr. E.

Strange that yours changed like that...
Maybe by default with you not being signed in, it automatically took your location into account and factored it in to the search.

I suspect you're right about that. I haven't been on ebay for weeks so it was a surprise to see that change.

On the other hand, no search results means no purchases. I was getting worried my wife had blocked that particular search result when I wasn't looking! Embarassed
