Is ESOC somehow not indexed by Google like normal sites are? I often search for individual threads by searching google "site:eso-community.net" plus a part of a thread I want to see but 9 times out of 10 it doesn't come up, and I have to search through my own post history like a fool. Why is this?

Please provide some specific example threads and what you searched for that didn't work

It works fine for me. The bigger question is why you're searching for old posts of yourself multiple times a day :hmm:

When I search the word "thanksgiving" on this site it doesn't come up with my old early thankfulness thread or my most recent one. What gives? #censorship (I know it's not actually censorship that's a joke, but I seriously want to know what is causing this problem)

When I searched "fightinfrenchman thanksgiving" (without site:esoc) I find this as the third result https://eso-community.net/viewtopic.php ... 156&t=8334

If I search only "thanksgiving" on site:esoc I can't find it, but some other results pop up. Either way doesn't seem to me it's a problem on esoc side since google does find it. Maybe google filter it out

Searching for the actual title, or words of the title seems to be the most effective (thanksgiving is not in the title, but in the copy), so "thankfulness" works fine

well i remember when searching "pr0n" on google gave you endless pages of content, now it's only like 200 results. i feel like they have optimized themselves out of actually doing real searches

@harcha They have optimised to shilling their own shit or of companies that pay them for ads placement. If the product is free, you're the product. :maniac:
