That's funny, I found 10 pages of results searching for "amberwolf cruiser"
That's even stranger; getting different results by different users for the same search.
Perhaps the google search, behind the scenes, is using regular google search "refining" of results by individual user data google has collected (like the way they target ads and such). If so, that could make everyone get different search results, which could make helping people find things with that search function difficult, if it's not consistent.. :/
Hopefully it's something else.
Did you use
With the google search, the former gets me 5 results; the latter 3,120.
It matters because if I *only* want to find posts with *both words*, the + in front of each is important in narrowing down the results so a search doesn't come up with unusably amounts of results.
The forum search gets 923 results in either case (because the defaults assume the + on each term), and 20034 results if I change from
Search for all terms or use query as entered
Search for any terms
option, in the forum's search function.
(BTW, it doesn't matter if I use a capital or lowercase C in cruiser or anywhere else in the terms--but I wish all the searches could be forced to use exact case to find things--it could make narrowing searches for certain technical terms and abbreviations easier.)
