    Hi,
    anything is wrong with the search result of the unity forum. enter: select gameobject in hierarchy by script
    and the most results are: Unity is the ultimate game development platform..
    Nothing is related to the search term.

    Further, in the past, clicking the search result link targets a new site, that was nice because its possible to open several sites automatically. Now you lost for what you have searched.

    * What happen to the search function?
    * Why the results are completely des-informative?

    We've recently updated the search system. We're actively monitoring and reiterating it.
    Thanks for reporting this! I'll take a look and fix it

    The result today was different but bad anyway.

    You should compare the result with google and optimize them based on the search term and results. Further "search for code examples" would be great addition.
