Limitations of Search

It seems like many of my search words don't get used in my searches and the search ends up being useless. For example, "tap water." "Tap" was not used because it is too short, so I got "water." This is not true at other forums I have used that have the same look and feel of AA. Can anything be done about this? Or maybe there is something I am doing incorrectly?

I have to agree that the native search is, well, sad. I set up a custom google search - try this and see if it gets you a better result.
