How to search this forum.. AND GET REAL RESULTS

With all the information here on this site, we should pretty much have no new questions, and telling people to use the "Search Function" is such an asshole thing to say...

AND, I'm so sick of waiting 30 seconds in between searches that produce the shittiest results ever, or none at all... And the fact it doesn't let you search for 3 letter words is even more annoying. So, I decided to write up a HOW TO so everyone can avoid duplicate posts and aggravating everyone else.

Google is better than anything ever, we all know that... So use Google to search the forum. How? Easy..
  1. Goto google.com
  2. In the search field type this: site:r6-forum.com search terms
  3. if you put your search terms in quotes, google will find the exact line of text.
  4. If you don't put your search terms in quotes, google will locate all posts that have those words in them.. Even 3 letter words like oil..

Here's one example:

To view links or images in this forum your post count must be 5 or greater. You currently have 0 posts.


Here's one where you specify the exact terms:

To view links or images in this forum your post count must be 5 or greater. You currently have 0 posts.


Here's another one, a duplicate post from today actually. I hope this helps everyone find the information they need when they want it.

Also, clearly you can use this for any site you want just by changing the address after site:

Your Welcome!!

No problem guys. I figured spending the 20 minutes to write it up would save everyone a lot of time. Especially if your are looking to do a search for HID! lol
