Help! The wrong keywords are coming up in my searches.

Are you seeing listings that don’t seem to match your search terms? 

Don’t worry, this isn’t a bug! Currently, our search engine accounts for possible misspellings and brings up listings with words close to the keyword you've typed in. This works very well for cases where you might have accidentally typed drector; our search will automatically find results with director. Alternatively, if you look up the keyword gender, your results may populate with listings that include general, generation, or other similar words.

To have your search show only results that match exactly what you typed, we recommend putting your search terms in quotations, like “director” or “gender”. That way, only listings with your exact search terms appear in your results. 
For even more refined search results, please take a look at our How to Search article.
