I just tried two vanity searches. Searched for "GSquared", then for "GSquared numbers". Trying to find posts where I've mentioned a Numbers table.

The odd thing was, I got more results for the second search than for the first one. I would have expected it to narrow the search down.

I'm also accustomed to search results that show some context for the search words that it found. This had the name of the post, but not the words surrounding the keyword, like Google or Bing or any other search engine I've used. Hard to know if the result is one I want to look at just from the name.

Tried it and recieved the dreadful message - logged in via user name and password.
There is a problem with this website's security certificate.


If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

I tried a search on my name just for the articles. I got 16 hits. Out of that only one was my article and the rest were Roy Carlsons article, one article regarding the PASS chapter and another article from Mike. The other articles I wrote did not show up on the search

Tried the search "execution plans" and received a VERY high number of hits. Only problem was the results show very little. First one said, Execution Plan and underneath it said Execution plan. That was the title of the article, but may be a few more visible words from the first post or something to make it easier to differentiate from one post to the next.

Blog only search for the same thing came back quick & clean. This looks good.

Same thing with the article only. I like this layout. The results seem to be very relavent.

Obligatory vanity search returned good data. Blog information seemed to go to the top.

One issue, I wanted to switch from searching for all three types to only searching for one. I selected what I wanted and then clicked on the Go button. It reset the search to include all three. Took me a minute to figure out that the Search button acts as the filter and the Go button ignores it. Maybe clearer labelling is needed for people as thick as I am.

I'll add my vote to the "show more of the message" group in the results. Also it would be nice to have options to show 100 or more results in one page. That way it's possible to refilter the results with the find feature in IE... which is very usefull.
