Sometimes, I'm not able to some questions that already exist on GMATClub by searching through Google or GMATClub search. Even string search doesn't seem to help. As a result, at times I end up creating a new post for a Q that already exists on GC. Bunuel is usually able to find those Qs, making me wonder whether there's a better way to search for Qs.

Over the last few months, I've posted quite a few Qs but some of them were duplicate. Some recent examples from this weekend:
https://gmatclub.com/forum/is-the-media ... l#p2251040 (I've shown the screenshot for the searches for this Q)
https://gmatclub.com/forum/when-the-pro ... 92132.html

I've had this problem before when I couldn't find a Q, and so I posted it only to realize that it already exists on GC. Any better way to check? This would save time for everyone including moderators and users. Thanks!

Thanks for your post. We are working on moving away from google

Have you tried the advanced search?
https://gmatclub.com/forum/search.php

It should be more reliable.

search. (There is no difference between google and ordinary search on gmat club)

Thanks bb. Yeah I think https://gmatclub.com/forum/search.php is slightly better. It could find the first Q but not the second as shown in the screenshots. FYI I also found a typo "prhase" but that doesn't really matter.

Dabaobao,

When searching for questions, try using quotations. For the example provided, I’d search like this:

“Is the median of class A and class B combined”

From that search, you’ll see that you get the correct question and that GMAT Club is the first result on Google.

Feel free to reach out with further questions. Good luck!
