It doesn't work for me. Results depend on the start page. (Should it?)

Starting at the top of the forums, http://www.wealth-lab.com/Forum/, a search for "LenMoz" yields seven results. All are incorrect, in topics where I never posted.

Starting at the Wealth Lab Site category, http://www.wealth-lab.com/Forum/Topics/Wealth-Lab-Site-38, a search for "LenMoz" yields no results, though I can see a thread I started.

It might be broken.

It works, yielding 42-55 results right now -- but if you search for LenMoz exactly as my posts suggest: with "site:wealth-lab.com/Forum/Posts/" as prefix. Using "/Forum" or "/Forum/Topics" (as opposed to "/Forum/Posts") will grab the ../Topics route which is a pretty volatile content. Today your post is found on ../Topics, but no longer tomorrow as newer posts keep pushing it back to page 2, 3 etc. And it will still appear in Google search for quite some time. Hence the discrepancy.

Also, there's an inherent delay because Google search is not real-time: your latest posts will be shown immediately.

It is cool, works pretty well. But how to search my reply rather than my post? Tks.

This question looks tough. You would want to limit Google search to exclude the first post from search results i.e. "tradercn. #1.", however, "tradercn site:wealth-lab.com/Forum/Posts/ -"tradercn. #1." doesn't seem to work.

Here's the list of known operators:

I leave it up to you. Hope this helps.

Another way to access own posts is by bookmarking them first. Afterwards they become available on My Dashboard.

I understand that the google search yields the wanted results, but why can't the internal search work by searching for your own Id?

You can bookmark threads where your posted and open them from My Dashboard.
