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

Edit: Google search does not work any longer. Please scroll down for alternatives.

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

I've tried all of the methods on this thread and I'm still unable to yield relevant - or any for that matter - search results. Any additional tips would be very much appreciated.

Thanks for posting this thread.

I imagine google purged the site from the results because of all the downtime and the invalid SSL certificate, but luckely site search still works on bing.

Go to bing.com and search for keywords + site:viragotechforum.com just like on google. E.g:
mikuni dual site:viragotechforum.com

briandk, is probably correct about Google. Another search engine that I just checked is DuckDuckGo, it works fine too.
