In World Search, Im gone again

I was 6th on the list in my category for the longest time and once again Im gone as of Saturday. I checked to make sure the show in search was checked and LL is still taking the money to show place in search but you can't find me, even if you search by the name of the biz. Only my classifieds show up.

Last time this happened it was 3 months I was gone from the search. I went from selling 6 to 7 homes a day to 1 a week. If you haven't looked at search in world for awhile you might want to check to see if your still there. You might be paying them for nothing.

Several people have reported similar problems, raised support tickets and filed JIRAs.  You are not alone.

I am confused, " Only my classifieds show up" that is what you pay for as far as i know ay other listing is random and by key words/traffic and a few other factors but not a perm position in the listings.

If you have the check mark in "show place in search" in your about land settings you pay 30 linden a week for that.

And I'm not looking for a perm position . Im just wanting any position. Right now Im gone off the radar.

I remain just astonished at search.  It was a working thing, reliable and fast at one time.  Now it's potluck whether it will work at all and when it does work, it's clunky at its fastest, and sometimes it takes seconds for a single typed character to  display.  It's absurd that to change ratings or kind of thing searched for you have to load their garbage spam for each and every change or parameter you set.  As if it's not slow enough.

 

As for having to have java scripts and cookies active to use in-world search, talk about going out of their way  to create entirely unnecessary barriers and potential for glitches while degrading performance, ease of use and end user convenience. 

 

All this would be bad enough if at least when you could get it to "work" from the search side, the results included everything it should, but they cannot even get this most basic function right.

 

I hesitate to call it a fail at launch that turned into a long term fail, least anyone mistakenly believe I am accusing it of waste and ruin, and having no redeeming qualities, whereas in reality, there are probably people who have not seen wasted potential and certainly many businesses have not been ruined by search borkage, and surely the fact that it does kind of sort of almost work, very slowly, some of the time, if you sacrifice just the right number of sion chickens, is a redeeming quality?

My shop has disappeared totally too. Wonder what on earth is going on in LL these days with all those merchant-unfriendly bugs.

You might try to produce a list of people whose in-world shops have been affected and SEE WHAT THEY SELL.

If experience serves on this point, there's reason to think that what they sell might not be totally random.

Search maintenance is happening.  They talk about "not being available" but, who knows, they mind bang the switch that drops things from search
