Searching: The Powerful Way to Find Things

You could browse through the merchandise categories listed on eBay's home page, as I just described, but given the huge number of categories, this could take forever—and, besides, you're never quite sure whether all sellers have picked the right categories for their merchandise. (Does a Batman statue belong in the Collectibles: Comics: Figurines category or the Toys & Hobbies: Action Figures: Superhero category?) In most cases, a better solution is to use eBay's built-in search engine.

Using eBay's Basic Search Function

eBay's home page has a simple search box, shown in Figure 4.4, which works fine for simple searches. Just enter your keywords, click the Search button, and view your results. It's pretty easy.
