  • And you're not afraid to use them.  Use Google with the site: selector until Live Search figures out how to index these forums.

  • Live Search with the site: selector works as well.



    The problem is with the search from within the forums.

  •  The forums search actually uses Live search. The problem (at least, as of last week) is that Live hadn't crawled these forums (for various reasons relating to Live that I don't fully understand) and so our search was, in effect, useless. It's my understanding that as of now, Live should have made great progress with it's crawl, but I don't know what % of the forums or how far behind it is...

  •  Could you please explain how to do this with either Live Search or Google? I'm trying to search a particular forum (Windows 7 Beta) for a particular keyword (XBOX) and the search returns over 70 million hits from every possible website.

    Thanks.
