Search Results on

Postby Hilohi » Sat Nov 12, 2011 9:26 pm

When I search for a particular topic in Spanish on, the search results aren't as comprehensive as when I search for that same topic in English. For example, when I search for "prayer", the search results include articles from "Scriptures", "General Conference", "Magazines", "Manuals", "Media Library" and "Other". On the other hand, when I search for "oracion" (prayer in Spanish), the search results only include articles from "Otro" (other in Spanish).

I know that a lot of articles and features that are available in English aren't available in other languages. However, just about a month or two ago, the Spanish search results were a lot more comprehensive than they are now. Does anyone know why the search feature in Spanish renders so few results/articles now?

I've never been happy with the search engine the church uses for their website. I see by changing the default language to Español and entering oracion into the search box, I get a whopping 37 hits. This is why I'm not happy with their search engine.

Suggestion... try going to and typing this: oracion into the search box. When I do this, I get an astounding 56,400 hits! IMO, whatever the church uses for a search engine really needs a serious overhaul. There should NOT be an order of magnitude difference in hits between their search and a google search.
