Searching finds nothing ever

  1. I find the search feature from the wp-admin useless. I would assume that since it says SEARCH EVERYTHING that it would find comments, message text, and keywords and categories. I put words in to search for and it never finds anything. Would help me to make sure I didn't duplicate pictures. Bug or feature?

    The blog I need help with is raybrizzipicoftheday2.wordpress.com.

  2. The WordPress.com search engine indexes post, pages, and comments content (body text). Unless entered as text in those contents, blog name, post titles, and post/comment author names are not indexed. http://en.support.wordpress.com/wordpresscom-search/

    The Tags search page is in the Reader area of the Dashboard.
    http://wordpress.com/tags/

    For Topics (Tags page) searches see http://en.support.wordpress.com/topics/ This is the syntax http://en/wordpress.com/tags/canada
    See here http://wordpress.com/#!/read/topics/

    For Google searches use this format and replace "keyword" with whatever word you wish:
    keyword site:wordpress.com/

    Example search string
    Queen Victoria site:wordpress.com
    results > http://tinyurl.com/csaobsx

    For searches of your own content use omnisearch https://en.support.wordpress.com/omnisearch/

  3. This is what I tried. none of the categories or keywords are ever found. it only seems to search the title of the page. again, useless.
