How to search for duplicates

As we all know, it's always good to do a quick search before posting a deal to make sure it hasn't already been posted. A quick and easy way to search for deals that have already been posted is to search by the store or website. If you're going to post a deal for skullcandy headphones from ebay, rather than searching "skullcandy headphones", input this into the search bar: "site:ebay skullcandy" This way, the most recent posts from ebay.com that contain the word "skullcandy" will be displayed. Hope this tip helps!

yups..that definitely works well. i usually just do "site:ebay" for this example, and then once the lists is generated, i use my control find option to search for "headphones"..something like that.

@nimrodboy3

if you searched "site:ebay headphones" you wouldn't even need to use the control-find option. the Ctrl-F definitely helps a lot of the time though

@nimrodboy3 I have been doing the opposite looking up the product and then control finding the site

@Acarone Thanks I never thought of doing it that way
