David’s Monthly Orchid Tip May 2010
David Off is a 3rd generation member of the highly respected WALDOR ORCHIDS family.
We have begun to sell once again on ebay now that the weather is conducive. And I found ebay to be crowded and muddy this year, So this morning, I sat down to refine my search options to eliminate the items that I don’t want to see. If you use the advanced search option you simply enter the words you’d like to hit on (remember that the key words you use will only hit on the item description line) and you can also choose words to axe. I usually search the key words “cattleya orchid” and there would normally be 250-600 hits. However, this year’s lists were 800-900 consistently. Whether your search is for other orchid types, by eliminating the key words that display items such as, painting and jewelry ect., you will refine your search and save time. I listed below the words I cut from the list. I also like to display items from highest to lowest price, as most items end on a weekend, and I like to display 100 items per page to move things along. Happy ebaying.
