Ebay can't guarantee that the listing will be searchable for up to 24hrs yet they don't refund us the amount for that time period.
That isn't right.

FAQ for Sellers: Why You Cannot Find Your Listing
on 05-17-2012 02:02 PM
Did you read this - just above the "List your item" button on the SYI page ?
"Your listing will be posted on eBay and can be viewed in My eBay.
Your listing may not be immediately searchable by keyword or category for several hours (or up to 24 hours in some circumstances), so eBay can't guarantee exact listing durations."

Indexing can take several hours as it is, BUT you have already revised it twice and that just puts it back in queue to start all over again.
Leave it alone.

You have revised it twice, so it is still in the indxing queue.
If your item sells make sure you have a real PayPal payment in your PP account before shippig. and require Signature on delivery (since transaction > $250).

Patience I know its hard... but it takes about 24hrs. If still not finding it then consider changing the category, title, or both. Goodluck!
