I am using search function for my site search but it doesn't give satisfactory results

I have created pages with name;
Network Linking Products (NDL)
Optimised Protection Variant (OPV)

If i search with Network Linking Products then it points to that page but if i just type NDL it will give message: You searched for "NDL"
Sorry, your search query did not return any results.

same with the other page, If we have some text in our content of page or in page name then it should have to give us result.

I already had written all those words in keywords for search engine..

Can anyone advise me how to get search function work well for this kind of errors.

As well as using NDL in the title you could use it in the content of the page as well. Try that and see if the search picks it up

Doesn't the Search ignore 3 char strings by default?

Hi Will

I have used page name and title as Network Linking Products (NDL) and it's also in content of the page. Still it's not working.

Search can't pick other 3 char words sometimes it work for 2 char words but for some words it doesn't work at all.
