Why is the search function on GAG so incompetent?

For example, in my previous question, when the customary list of similar questions came up, they all contained the word "dictate".

Would especially appreciate any insight from people in the IT field.

  • It sorts results by the percentage of relevance to your search query. If no results contain your specific term(s) then it goes by the next most similar results.

    Since your question is new it's probably not even indexed in the GaG database yet.

  • Search functions on this kind of site are nearly always useless. You're better off searching the site with google.

    eg. "site:girlsaskguys.com what did you think of the dictator"

  • It would be nice if you could narrow the results by date.
