Why are there no results for valid phrases?

How come searches for common words return no results?

Better phrasing: Check your spelling. Many but not all words are corrected prior to searching. Use specific nouns and adjectives – omitting verbs, articles, prepositions. Common words like “anatomy,” “and,” “posters,” “the,” “this,” “that” and “to” can return too many or unexpected results so most superfluous words are omitted. You may use OR with keywords on either side for a combination search. Try limiting typed keywords to five. It might not be your fault. We manually index multiple variations of keywords relating to anatomy posters or blog articles. There may be no articles on the desired topic within the store database. Click on hyperlinked word suggestions if presented or choose a category to browse. Try the sitewide Search (identified by blue button on Site Map page). It performs a more exhaustive search of the store and other pages within this domain.

Phrase suggestions: You might notice hyperlinked alternative keywords or even blog article titles with search results (or lack thereof). These links may provide more information about the subject under investigation. Our search engine undergoes constant refinement. If it is not working well for you today, return later.
