Search engine on fixya throws answers too generic to be of use

I search for 1990 toyota 4runner headlight replacement and get answers for toyota avalon. These cars DO NOT have the same headlight system. One uses a sealed beam and the other a replacement lamp secured by a locking ring. Is this because you are trying to make it difficullt enough that the casual user will get frustrated and pay for expert help?

Depending on the amount of search terms (words) you are entering into the search box, you will get an assortment of results - some relative to the exact phrase, others relative to certain keywords.

So the fact that you're looking for Toyota is the reason you're seeing some Toyota results. Perhaps a more narrow search using less terms may help?

From the FixYa FAQs:

Search - Type your product name or keyword phrase into the search box on the Homepage. You'll be taken to a search results page listing all of the products that match your search criteria, with the ability to narrow down your results by product category. If there is only one match for your search criteria, you will be taken directly to that matching product's page.

As an Internet marketing strategy, SEO considers how search engines work, what people search for, the actual search terms or keywords typed into search engines and which search engines are preferred by their targeted audience. Optimizing a website may involve editing its content, HTML and associated coding to both increase its relevance to specific keywords and to remove barriers to the indexing activities of search engines. Promoting a site to increase the number of backlinks, or inbound links, is another SEO tactic. As of May 2015, mobile search has finally surpassed desktop search,[2] Google is developing and pushing mobile search as the future in all of its products and many brands are beginning to take a different approach on their internet strategies

Why do I have to join this site to post a solution?


Hello,

Fixya is not just a site, it is a company. It is a company that takes the idea of providing a service (some free and some for money) and having people that are knowlegeable and responsible enough to provide solutions. There must be a way of tracking who provides solutions and if they are quality solutions. If there were no requirements and Fixya just allowed anyone to post solutions, there would be so much spam on this site it would be worthless.

Why not sign up? You won't get rich, but Most don't do it for the $$$ but just to help others out.

Thanks for asking. Oh, and take a moment to rate this solution.

Yahoo and Google Search Not Working


Hi

If you restored your computer, you may have destroyed some of the files needed by Yahoo and Google search engines. The easiest way to resolve this is to download and reinstall both the Yahoo and Google search engines.

Good Luck

How do I delete my profile?


The easiest and fastest way to have your Fixya profile deleted from the site, is to send an email to Experts@Fixya.com and also send a copy to Lauren@Fixya.com with the title of the email as; "Please delete my Fixya Account"

Please remember that Fixya owns your answers and solutions to all the questions you tackled and might want to keep your profile active if any of your solutions are getting good hits on the search engines, they might not want to remove your profile, but you can ask.

Remember all those TOS (Terms Of Service) paragraphs, you agreed to when you first started on Fixya, it includes the fact that Fixya, basically owns your answers once you post it on the site, even if you leave.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
