I'm trying to search all topics on "GSG" as in gsg magazines.  However, i get back no results.  This makes no sense because i've found several mentions of it in various articles.  Ive tried the advanced search and several different ways.  No dice.  What am I doing wrong?

If you do search "gsg magazine" a bunch of "magazine" topics comes up and one is also "gsg" and "magazine".  I don't know how the search is working either?

Use Google to search just the site itself:

https://www.google.com/advanced_search

Seems to work better than the internal engine- no idea why.

Or, for the above case, just use the simple Google window and enter the following:
Code:
gsg+magazine site:bullseyeforum.net
The plus means all terms connected by +.  Don't use spaces with the + sign(s).  The rest is the (hopefully) obvious.

You can modify the above to meet other needs.

I think the forum search engine has problems with short search strings three letters or less.

For example, “mag” doesn’t work, but “mags” does.
