Search not working

I don;t think search is working right

I recently made a post:
wle review : Cyansky M1R tiny usb-c light
https://budgetlightforum.com/node/80482
if i search for ‘cyansky’, it does not appear

also SIGShooter posted one:
Quick impressions of Cyansky M1R
https://budgetlightforum.com/node/80464

i can;t find his either

they are both on the site, but you can;t find them with search..

>?

Yup, doesn't work.

Also, this...

https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Abudgetlightforum.com+Cyansky+M1R

doesn't work either.

oh
good experiment
that would be google though, right?

maybe the site isn;t telling google its contents any more..

( i think the site search is a re-labeled google search anyway)

It would appear that the Threads in the Keychain / “Button” Battery Flashlights topic aren’t being indexed by the search Engine.

Could the quotes (“”) have something to do with that? Inquiring minds want to know.

Never mind, it seems several other threads also don’t show, hmmm.

Yes, it is, but the two different searches usually bring up different results.  :THUMBS-UP:

also if you search for something common, like LED, and sort by date, it say 01/04/22 is the latest result

that can;t be right!

The posts do appear though if one uses duckduckgo. Using this criteria cyansky wle budgetlightforum I get a hit.

I’ve been testing DDG on a Linux VM and it doesn’t seem any slower than Google. I’m liking it enough to switch over to it on all my machines. The good thing about search engines is that it only takes a minute or so to switch from one to another.

oh – i meant i was surprised that DDG would be indexing them correctly, before google did it

maybe the trouble is, google isn;t crawling budgetlightforum.com any more, to store the results
but DDG is

There’s really nothing to do, it’s just how Google’s (and other search providers) web crawlers work.

Given all the web pages out there it probably takes time for the crawlers to get to pages like BLF which don’t get many hits. That’s just my opinion of course and hopefully not totally off-base. Silly

Probably took the crawler a few more days than normal.
