ebay search mistake

Dive kit or kinky pants? Even ebay search get’s it wrong sometimes!

My girlfriend is buying some scuba diving kit at the moment, which inevitably involves a large amount of internet research, and of course a good trawl of ebay to see what deals are out there.

Imagine her surprise last night when she searched ebay for ‘bcd’ (buoyancy control device – the essential, air filled jacket divers wear), and the results returned a rather kinky ‘sidemount buttplate’ amongst more expected items. A later search returned a good selection of bras alongside the requested dive wear.

Interesting mix up! Timely for us too – we are currently revamping a lot of our search functionality, and it’s a useful reminder to see just how easy such seemingly illogical search matches can crop up if you get your equations slightly wrong.

Hopefully we will never have quite such a range of inappropriate holidays to pop up in results when you are innocently hunting for a dive holiday though..!
