Hopefully the mods won't remove this post as it's the best bit of advice i have received since my old school mate Charlie told me not to date Lisa from year 5 as everyone else he knew had!
Everyone i know who uses this site is frustrated at the appalling search facility on it.
A workmate told me to search for the item or thread you are looking for on google followed by hotukdeals in the google search engine, i have tried this many times and it works perfectly, unlike the search facility on hukd!
Classic example again tonight looking for co-op bank thread, you do an advanced search on here and co-op bank isn't even listed as an option, google it and hey presto!
MODS PLEASE ALLOW USERS TO COMMENT BEFORE REMOVING POST AS IT HIGHLIGHTS ONCE AGAIN YOUR VERY POOR SEARCH FACILITY.
No doubt i will be banned for 24 hours after this post, see you all Saturday!

lol, I use the same name on a lot of things but changed it for this site. If you type my username in it comes up with all sorts of posts from other forums.... people start stalking you.. The next thing you know they're waiting for you to come home at night. Then you wake up in the morning and find someones been through your bin. Then the phone calls start. Knocks at the door. creepy.

For best results, use the 'site:' option in the search bar:

[search criteria] site:[url]www.hotukdeals.com[/url]

ie

Samsung 40" LCD site:[url]www.hotukdeals.com[/url]

to search a site propery using google

type "site:[url]www.hotukdeals.com[/url] sausages"

google.co.uk/sea…x-a

damn beat me!

oh and btw if they remove this post and ban you they're only trying to cover up their embarrasment.

Somehow I doubt anyone would get banned, it's not actually a new topic - there's even been a custom google HUKD search made...

It's not the search functions fault then is it. If you look for something that isn't there, then what was it supposed to do?

Humans have inputted it wrong. It's nothing to do with the search function.

Let's say I put a pot in "cupboard 1", and tell you to look for it in "cupboard 2". Will you find it? No?
No matter how many times you search cupboard 1, it will never be there.

I used my lateral thinking to find the pot.

I agree totally, humans have inputted it incorrectly, however other humans when searching should not have to think of every which way another human could have originally inputted the info. a good search facility will find it ,especially if for example, i am looking for co-op bank, i expect the 2 letters "co" to produce "co" followed by anything else. co-op, coop, cooperative, etc. etc.

You analogy is all wrong.

The 'cupboard' is not the search item, it's the location. The POT is the search item.

So you put a pot in a cupboard and ask someone to go get it.

A search engine which uses exact terms will look for 'pot'.

Fuzzy logic would look for anything with 'pot' in the name. Why do you think Google is the most used search engine in the world?
