Searches taking long

I have found the search to be a useful tool in the ranch since most of the 'regular' doubts would have been already raised and instead of posting one more question, a simple search will usually bring up the answers. Sometimes, you could learn some new related stuff too, browsing over the search results.
I have known the ranch for quite some time now, but recently, I find that any search is taking an unbearably long time.
Any help from the ranchers or bartenders?

I usually search the individual forum that I think is most likely to have the results I'm looking for. Much faster. Even if I have to search 2 or 3 forums, it's still faster than searching all open forums. Especially since some of the forums are becoming so large.

I agree. Here's the link:
