In the search you can choose to search entire posts, but most people search titles only for faster and better results.

How long have you been on forums? Nobody searches

Go to SoftballFans.com and join their forums. See how many "What's the best ASA bat" threads there are

So I'd then ask, if no one searches AT ALL...what difference does the title make? LOL.

You come here about an ingrown nail you'd just start a new thread asking...it'd be pure luck if another "specifically titled" thread were there...and you wouldn't even bother searching past the first page

I rarely use the search function.

But I already said, I am lazy.

The search was referring to Google... Not chaz...

Look, I realize no one cares about the financial side of things around here but me. However, this place cost money and I'd like to hope that some day, it can actually sustain itself without me having to come out of pocket every month to keep it running.

If that means the members have to adjust their thread titles to be "relevant", I don't think that is such an outrageous request.

The thread title is THE most important part of the post as it ends up being the page title, which in turn has the most impact on your search engine rankings.

This is why forums are so concerned with them. It directly impacts the traffic the forum gets, the members who join and the people who click on ads.

Not true. If you put in my daughter's very unusual first name, google sends you right to that thread we had about kid's names. I know, because my husband got pissed off at me about it. Who knew?
