    At least they somewhat resemble what's in the search title.
    I often get weird stuff come up that I don't think shares a single key word with the search. I think ebay just want to sell you stuff and don't care what you really want or need. Same with what country you are in, I tick local and get china showing up first in the search.

    I often have truck parts turn up in the returns when searching pickups.
    The rarer the pickups, the more likely I'll get extraneous results.

    I got an email saying I'd purchased something I hadn't even bid on. Had to let seller know.
    Anyone else had that experience?

    I was looking to upgrade my licenced Floyd Rose with a genuine one. I learned an important lesson about not searching on Amazon for "vibratos" at work. The suggested results and images that appeared were very NSFW!
