Main site search function

I know how busy everyone is but something which has been bugging me a lot as a main site poster which I just have to get off my chest: there are two things which seem (to me) to make the search function on the MAIN site seem unreliable...

I tried searching for Football Manager last week and my Football Manager 2009 review didn't show, yet Football Manager 2008 one did. Today both are finally showing, but the search results are in no order. Surely it would be better to have the most recent at the top to avoid getting older and less relevant stuff?

Just try search "Call of Duty" on the main site and see what I mean. Surely you would want Giraffes Call of Duty 5 review as the first on the search results, and not Nvidia graphics drivers.

I know nothing about how search engines work, but this one makes manual searching just as quick

runs away and hides

Re: Main site search function

Strange, I'd have thought that the results would have shown in date order, and picking up all results. I've not really used the search on the site, so can't vouch for it's usability.
