Search engine issues?

In the search field, type the title My House Is Your House. A list of various suggestions appears but does not include the title I'm looking for (this one — https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10528166/) When I click "Exact title matches" it still doesn't appear.

This happens whether logged in or logged out, so it's not my settings.

The show, on Amazon Prime, has been in the database since 2019-06-22. Two weeks strikes me as sufficient time for a title to propagate and get picked up by the search function, but maybe that's not the case? I noticed this for other titles, too.

I also don't get that title from a standard search (the box atop most IMDb pages).

This seems related to this thread
https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/my-movie-title-isn-t-showing-up-anymore-in-the-search
And the title there was "the cabin house".

Is it only pages with "house" in the title?

Thanks for checking. I missed the other thread before I posted. The title Unboxed with Nikki Chu has only two eps showing up in a search—not the parent title—and it doesn't contain the word "house." Looks like a wider issue.

I'm logged out and got just two, the first one on your list (I remember the word "Millennial") and one other. Just tried again and now three are showing up. I wonder if a build or something is happening right now and it's causing some sluggishness?

I see My House Is Your House and Unboxed with Nikki Chu  in the search results now. Also The Cabin House from the other thread.

Thanks for the heads up. I see the them now, too. I guess it was just a temporary hiccup in the system!
