@AaronJosephWorkshop As I said, it appears to be based on which page of the results the unindexed items are due to appear on, and it will cause an error message for that whole page of the results.
Other pages of the results will show up ok, unless it was the very first page of results (although you can get to the other pages by altering the URL, page 3 of “tissue box cover” shows up fine - Search results on Folksy on Folksy but presumably all of your items are on the first 2 pages, but one of these new listings is due to show on page 1, and one on page 2, as neither of those work).
The items on the first page of results for “tissue holder” are your items, but they’re not the 2 unindexed ones, so everything on that page shows up fine. However if you try to go to page 2 of this search then you will get the error, because that is where the new items are due.
The search results for “tissue” and “tissue holder” will not be exactly the same items in exactly the same order. They will likely have some of the same results, but the order will differ depending on how relevant the search determines each item is to the search term. This suggests your items are more relevant to the search “tissue” than “tissue holder”. As you mention “tissue” multiple times in the title, description and tags, but only have the phrase “tissue holder” mentioned once in the tags, this will make them more relevant on a search for tissue than tissue holder, so more likely to be on the first page.
Relisted items don’t seem to be causing the same problems as brand new items. If these don’t get indexed, they still don’t immediately show at the beginning of recently listed as they should, but because they had previously been indexed when they had been listed before, they still show in the search results with the placement from the last time they were listed.
From what seller’s have reported to us, it also doesn’t seem to be all items listed/relisted at a certain time that are affected, but it can just be a few in one bulk relist, which is making it trickier to determine what’s causing this.
