Is there any way to get a better search feature than the one we have now? I have been unable to find certain threads many times with it, even threads I've found with it before.

Mostly it's just not indexing everything. To do that you have to...

I'm definitely disappointed in the Google search as well. I really expected they would do more to index both forums.

As I mentioned in the post bigode linked, there is a script that can be run against the database to rebuild the search index. We opted not to go that path for the reasons outlined in the post. However, I think it's probably worth re-examining it to determine if it's worth it, for both forums (search sucks sweaty balls on Nifty too).
