I know this has been asked before (at least twice by me) but I don't recall that I ever got an answer. I have been told that the DaniWeb search is google based. If that is so, why do I get different results when I search from within DaniWeb, and when I use google? For example, when I search for
either in all forums (basic search) or in VB.Net I get (in Firefox) a screen that says "Loading" or (in IE) a screen that says "No Results" but when I use google I get actual results (619 hits)?
I know we get a lot of traffic from google hits so it is important that google return valid hits, but a lot of people use the internal search and I would imagine these users would benefit from a search that actually does what it says. It might cut back on having to answer the same questions again and again (assuming that most users are bothering to do a search).
