maybe this will help clear things up................

I wanted to be sure, but this is categories acting as intended.
An item's Category, Subcategory, and Sub-subcategory are determined by the drop-down options chosen during the listing process. The subsequent tags are used to surface the item when using the search option, but when browsing Categories/SubCategories/Sub-subcateories, only these first three terms are relevant.
For example, if you choose the Category "Jewelry," Subcategory "Bracelet," and Sub-subcategory "Stone," your item won't appear in Jewelry > Bracelet > Cuff, even if "cuff" is a tag included on the listing. Buyers will still be able to search for an item using your tags and be able to find them.
If you'd like to make your items appear in a specific subcategory, you can edit your listings to reflect this.
Again, sorry for the delay on clearing this up. Thanks all!
