I have a problem with a query. I'd like to make a search in a  table inserting 2 or more words in the input form, using the OR.  Everything works fine with 1 word but with more I obtain result only for  the LAST inserted one
Please reply me soon,

Reproduce code:
require 'db_connect1.php';
if ($search) // perform search only if a string was entered. 

$words = explode (" ", $search); 
$num = COUNT ($words); 
WHILE ($n<$num) { 
$queryWhereArray = "(description like %".$words[$n]."%  || keywords like %".$words[$n]."%    || cost  like  %".$words[$n]."%  )"; 
$queryWhere = join(" or ",$queryWhereArray); 
$query = "select count(id) as k, *
from search 
where $queryWhere group by k 
order by id desc";


 $result = mysql_query($query);   
 $num_rows = mysql_num_rows($result);

       if (!($num_rows))		
             echo "Sorry - no matches were found. Please <a href=\"search1.html\">go back</a> and try some different search terms.";

       else {
            echo "<font face=verdana,sans-serif size=-1>";
		echo "Search Results:"; 
		while ($r = mysql_fetch_array($result))
		 { // Begin while 
		echo "<br>";
            $link1= $r["link"];
		$meta= $r["description"]; 
     		$keywords1= $r["keywords"];

            echo "<table border=0 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0>";
            echo "<tr>";
            echo "<td width=50>";
            echo "$id1";
            echo "</td>";
            echo "<td width=500>";        
            echo "<a href='$link1'>";
		echo "$meta";
            echo "</a>";
            echo "<br>";
            echo "$keywords1";
            echo "</td>";
            echo "<td>";
            echo "Rs";
	    echo "$price";
            echo "/-";
            echo "</td>";
            echo "</tr>";

            echo "<br>";
            echo "<br>";

		 } // end while 
		echo "</table>";
            echo "</font>";
 echo "You did not enter anything to search for. Please <a href=\"search1.html\">go back</a> and enter a search word.";

Expected result:
i want to search the entire string
