The_Reluctant_Gaijin

I have just made a posting and tried to search for it using keywords but cannot find it. Is there some kind of time delay nobody told me about, or will no-one be able to read my article ever?smiley - wah

*waves* Hi GB smiley - smiley

I think what The_Reluctant_Gaijin means, is how do other people find his/her entry.

Hootoo's search engine is not one of the better one's Gaijin. I used the most obvious word 'Gaijin' and came up with this

http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/h2g2/alabaster/Search?searchstring=Gaijin&searchtype=goosearch&dosearch=Search+h2g2

You're right, your entry's not there. Someone else may want to explain how our search engine works.

However your entry will be here for a couple of days <./>info?cmd=art</.>

Vip has offered you some good advice in your PeerReview thread. If <./>ThePost</.> takes it on, and I can't see why they wouldn't, you'd get plenty of readers. smiley - smiley

"In the days of the Beep (BBC) the search was 'refreshed' with new additions once every 24 hours.

And more currently it appears still to be the case, However I must say the search quality has improved."

Pastey

The search was one of the things I totally rebuilt from the ground up. It was refreshing as soon as you published an entry.
