How can I get better search results

  1. Jun 10, 2009 #1
    How do I properly use the search function? Much of the time when I use the search button I get completely unrelated results. Am I doing something wrong, or is this normal?

    Thank you

    Searching is notoriously bad on vBulletin in general, and there's not a whole lot we can do to make it better. Honestly? I use google with "site:physicsforums.com" in the query.
