This problem is not new. Lots of discussion on it. Try longer search terms and be aware that the search button has both a left and a right side that do different things.

You can always use a full Google search without any limitations by typing "site:CanadianHobbyMetalWorkers.com search terms" into your browser. Ignore the quotes and substitute your own search terms. However you can put quotes around your own search terms to search explicitly.
