Since relevancy happened listings that had the search phrase in the title and as a single tag were more relevant than listings that had the search phrase words in separate tags. So if someone searched for a crochet hat, all the items on the first many pages had "crochet hat" in the title and "crochet hat" as a single tag.
Well, I have stopped being relevant lately, in all my searches: crochet hat, newsboy hat, earflap hat, etc. So I started doing a little detective work to figure out what is going on. Well, many relevant items no longer have those words as a single tag, but rather those words are often NOT in a single tag.
I kind of want to scream, because my season is approaching, and I'm nowhere to be found in any of my searches. So the question is: is anybody else noticing this change.
