Describing a product is not the same as asking Google or Siri a question!
Adjectives may have many synonyms and your search will only find websites that use the same synonyms you are using.
We require product descriptions to be 3 words or less to capture the best stores competing for your business.
• Instead of 'flea treatments, try just 'fleas'.
• Instead of 'larimar necklace', try just 'larimar'.
• Instead of 'honda accord seat covers', try 'honda seat covers'.
• Try product synonyms: search both 'apple cases' and 'iphone folio'.
• Compound words with spaces can bring up more results: search both 'shopvac' and 'shop vac.'
BTW, these suggestions will give you better shopping results on any search engine!
It takes a few seconds for your device to find and highlight your search words. If there are no search words in the results, then it will appear to have done nothing.
Kindle Fires take an obsurd length of time to highlight, most other devices work quickly.
These are additional links to some of the underlying pages of the website.
No. There is no storage, analysis, or correlation of your search words, search history, store visits or IP address.
GimmeUSA does not track or request your whereabouts using your device. Append the city to your search, e.g. 'real estate agents Peoria'.
No, GimmeUSA does not use Pay-per-Click.
You have visited a site in the GimmeUSA search results that sold your IP address and what you are shopping for to a third party. GimmeUSA itself does not participate in such programs.
Some businesses are entered by users like you and others are discovered by our web crawler.
To enter your business or any business into GimmeUSA, type the domain name like 'myFavoriteStore.com' into the search bar.
Phone the business if this is your first purchase and the cost is high. Use PayPal or a credit card.
Small businesses have customer support, product experts, a telephone and they answer it. Not so at Amazon.
If you want something in a hurry, call the business and ask if your item is in stock and to please ship it immediately.
Send an email to email@example.com. Include the website name and we will contact the business.
GimmeUSA is a search engine for both service businesses and e-commerce businesses.
Of course, but GimmeUSA does not factor in popularity metrics, allowing less known businesses to be on the first page.
This feature makes the website much more useful. The more useful a website is, the more traffic it will get.
To prevent sites like Walmart.com and Amazon.com from dominating search results, GimmeUSA limits each website to 60 indexed pages.
To expose more businesses to more shoppers, each website is allowed one result page on any search. The page chosen has the best relevance to the search terms.
On the search page, enter just the domain name, e.g. 'beachncreations.com'.
Disallow '/' for User-Agent 'gimmeusa' in your website's robots.txt file.
Apache Solr is our search engine core. It is used unmodified. After Solr returns a set of search results, we boost the score of promoted websites because we know these websites are active and current.
The web crawler reads each website about once a week. Indexed pages will be updated then.
If the reason is fixable as indicated in the index results, please fix your website and enter the domain name again into the search bar. It will be re-examined and indexed if corrected.

GimmieUSA Hermosa Beach, California is the owner and operator of this web crawler or robot.
If your website is a U.S. a on-line seller, shoppers will be able to find it on GimmeUSA.com
If the information on your Homepage or About page reveals that it is not an on-line seller, no information is saved and crawling your site stops. Otherwise, your business may be found on GimmeUSA.com unless you specify '/' for User-Agent 'gimmeusa' in your robots.txt disallow directives.
Your homepage and a select few underlying pages are crawled no more than once per week to sync GimmeUSA with your website updates. When the underlying pages are fetched, the frequency may be high but should not be less than 2 seconds between each page request.
