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.'

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.

We list and de-list businesses all the time because we dont know which businesses are current and viable. We use a monthly subscription based model that allows a business to tell us they are healthy and active. Each domain name subscription costs $12 per month, pay-as-you-go. An active subscription boosts the page rank of the search, not the final set of search results.
