Hidden Kobo books

I have noticed that there are quite a few books that are available for sale on the Kobo website but which don't show up in any search results.

For example, there are two editions of David Brin's The Postman that I can buy in New Zealand: the expensive, non-discountable Hachette UK edition; and the cheaper, discountable Random House US edition.

Only the Hachette edition shows up in the search results, but I can buy the Random House edition if I can find it.

I think I have noticed that in the past. But, both versions are turning up for me when I searched for "The Postman", "Postman" or "David Brin". This is from my work computer and is the same whether I am logged in or not. My account is currently set to Australia and I assume the site is seeing my IP as in Australia.

It seems to be fixed now, all the books (at least the ones I know about) are now showing up in the search results.

I do appreciate that most of the time the search results mention what series the book is a part of. (I'm mostly a fantasy guy, and most of my books are part of multi-book series.)
