Questions about searching via the API, typically using the /search method.

The API supports limited searching operations with the /search and /similar routes.

If you are trying to search primarily by tag, you're better off using the tagged parameter on /questions.

For more free form searches, we suggest using a third-party search engine (Google, Bing, etc.).
