Early BETA version = Work in Progress - See info.
This is early beta (WIP) site, with OB2. Migration is still going on. So everything is more or less broken. Probably more than less.
What is working? Very basics:
BazaarBay is a OpenBazaar search engine which currently indexes listings from OpenBazaar network vendors. BazaarBay is a search engine like Google, Bing, Yandex or Baidu. BazaarBay isn't a web shop / store. We do not create or host content for clients / stores, nor sell or buy anything. BazaarBay does not select or filter the content available on OpenBazaar network. Just as other Internet Service Providers do not provide, select or host the content accessible on the Internet by their users.
ob:// links - BazaarBay.org is fully OpenBazaar custom URL compatible. You can open any OpenBazaar link by just prefixing it with http://bazaarbay.org/ . Or alternatively you can open OpenBazaar page and drop the url in the search box on the front page.
News regarding the BazaarBay site are posted to Twitter using account @BazaarBay.
Basic search uses full text search. Any words mentioned in title, description or keywords will match. Default operator is and all the listed words need to match. Using - you can make a not query. As example Pizza -Frozen. Using # you can search hashtags / keywords only. Example: #pizza -#oven search tags. Tags can be combined with full text. Also using quotes creates phrase match. Example: #amazon "gift card" will search for listings tagged with Amazon containing gift card phrase. Using ! prefix works similarly but matches listing titles only. Exampe: !title or -!NotInTitle. These should not be used with advanced search. When using advanced search, comma separation is used. Which allows to search phrases in titles.
! match listing title
-! not match listing title
# match listing keyword
-# not match listing keyword
@ match vendor GUID or handle
-@ not vendor match GUID or handle
nsfw - Using this keyword you'll allow search to list nsfw listings which are hidden by default.
Got suggestinos? Let us know. - Thanks.
Using following tags in vendor about or description, you can hide or block vendor / listings on BB. Note check is case sensitive.
This site is under heavy development, there will be new major features like:

We got a full OpenBazaar network history data: Contracts and Markets (Peers) information stored in our database. Including the full original PGP signed JSON message details on contracts. (IP addresses, TCP ports, Public Keys, GUID, trace receipts, contract details) This is just to prove that we do not originate, provide or host the content on this site. Starting from: 2014-11-19.
OpenBazaar network bootstrapping seed information is provided by BazaarBay. Just add to your ob.cfg file a row in right section.
[MAINNET_SEEDS] mainnet_seed99 = seed.bazaarbay.org:80,8b17082a57d648894a5181cb6e1b8a6f5b3b7e1c347c0671abfcd7deb6f105feIf the main seed isn't available for some reason BB's seed can be used for bootstrap backup. Future will tell, if this service will be shutdown as unnecessary. Usually it's a good idea to have a alternate source for resources if the main source isn't available for some reason. BB seed is also available over HTTP port 80, in case you're suffering from firewall induced port access limitations.
BazaarBay reserves right to censor / hide / block any OpenBazaar network content relayed via this site, without any reasoning. We don't have time to discuss it, if you get banned. So don't. The decision is permanent. Common sense and good taste is being applied by chosen moderators.
