One of the first things I noticed before posting, is that all my queries in you search bar took me off site, outside of forum.
It might makes sense to backup the inhouse search with external. Still, you want the answers to be in the forum. That is, if you make money by people visiting the pages. If you want to minimize site traffic and membership, the best course is to answer any question with “go search it”. It is also a funny trick to pull on people searching a topic: where the first 50 search results to any question, becomes, “go search it”.
