Forum Search Alternative

PostAuthor: Jake » Tue Oct 29, 2019 10:33 pm

Many have questioned why the forum search returns zero results. I won’t bother going into details in this post, I will simply point to what does work.

Use https://cse.google.com/cse/publicurl?cx ... sypdyarw70

You sorta prompted me to do it, so you deserve credit.

Or just remove everything after ".com" and type what you are looking for followed by "site:" infront of the url. Works on every single website, especially well on forums.

For example

"http://viragotechforum.com/posting.php?mode=reply&f=208&t=61666&sid=d75446d8907276b90605e8d90f3bdf6e"

Becomes

"xv750 starter site:http://viragotechforum.com"

Which when you hit submit will give you this:

https://www.google.com/search?q=xv750+s ... hforum.com
