I find it very irritating to locate a post that already posted in even when using keywords from that post... Any solution?

Are you getting no results at all, or a lot of results that you're not interested in?

Try here: https://www.google.com/cse?cx=016660200577587308545%3Aesf40ml9aag&ie=UTF-8&q=&sa=Google+search#gsc.tab=0

or using the regular forum search, but try to be more specific if you're getting too many results (complete the "by user:", "Options", "Message age:" fields, and choose the boards where you think it's most likely the post was made), or less specific if you're getting no results at all.

You can also try using search operators, quotation marks generally speed up the search for me.

It's also possible that it the poster deleted his own post.

Just try one keyword that you think is least likely to have been used elsewhere in the thread or as above try search with google. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=553215.0

yea if you're looking for a post and know the exact quote a search engine search with the homepage address with the quote is your best bet and try tweaking the dates to help narrow the options given.
