This is one of my pet peeves here.
I don't understand why the search defaults to "keywords" and not "titles". Why search in the keywords? that doesn't help anyone. Seems like it would be a very easy fix to make the search default to searching titles.

I agree. The search should be on titles, not keywords.

But the purpose of my original post is to help others, not criticize FR.

I find that the best way to search any website is to yippy (or google) it by name, rather than use the search field provided by the site.

Even then, you also get “generic hits” in which the link just takes you to the main page of the website... and the content you’re looking for (which the search engine claimed it just found) is nowhere to be seen.
