Hi, Search result is rank based. If you search for "iPhone 5", the first search results would be from "Cell Phones & Smart Phones" category. But matches from "Accessories" category would be returned in subsequent pages. findItemsAdvanced can not change this behavior. You can use categoryId in the request to filter search results based on category. Regards, eBay Developer Support
