I would take a poll to confirm your assertion about typical methods and thus
I don't trust Google or any of the other Big Tech companies _at all_ anymore.
For years, I have experienced finding a result and then looking for the exact
same thing the very next day to share the link, and it doesn't come up in the
results AT ALL. The search results are constantly changing, getting filtered,
and being manipulated.
If you make a reliable search feature, people would use that and then that would
de facto become the typical method for finding relevant posts - in a timely
manner. Either way, it's a self-fulfilling argument.
