 > With Google you can search a site for a term. For example, to search the
 Relocate Upload plugin the term "custom folders" you would type this into
 Google's search box:
 > site:https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/relocate-upload "custom

 That was my initial thought as well, but it would only search that
 particular page. Individual topics have a different URL structure, e.g.
 https://wordpress.org/support/topic/missing-backslash/, and don't have
 plugin name in the URL.

 That said, I think we could significantly improve current results with
 [attachment:7.patch] for now.

 It adds a "Search this forum" form on plugin- and theme-specific views:
 [attachment:7.patch], and then uses the plugin or theme name as `intext`
 parameter in the search query passed to Google.

 Using Jetpack's forum as an example, this produces much more relevant
 than this:
