Today I searched for "mappoint optimize" and there were no results. So I reduced my search string to just "mappoint". I found this topic http://www.mibuso.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=18655&hilit=mappoint+optimize and was very confused when I read the word "optimize" in one of the last posts. Does anyone do have an idea why my first search didn't throw up this topic?

    Try this,

    third on the list:

    http://www.google.com/search?source=ig& ... =&gs_rfai=

    I assume you used the phpbb search engine. The thing is that that engine works directly in MySQL. And it considers each post as a separate record to search. So in this case the words mappoint and optomize were not in the same post.

    Google on the other hand sees this as just one big web page, so it sees both at once.
