Reddit is one of the largest social networking sites in the world. The forum has been online for a long time, but recently gained popularity. Nevertheless, users have reported several issues with the website/app. One such case is with Reddit search not working.
Reddit search not working
Sometimes you might not get proper results for hours of search, and in other cases you might not get any search results at all. Some of the common causes of this error are:
- Reddit search is a poor search engine and therefore you may not get the results you want.
- Issues with Reddit’s servers. This is especially true if you’re not getting proper results for common keywords.
- Filters set to Reddit search. Filters are usually hidden (unlike Google Search).
- Ad blockers can prevent search.
If you are unable to search for your desired terms in Reddit, try these suggestions-
- Remove any browser and system ad blockers
- Issues with Reddit’s servers
- Disable filters
- Use Google search instead of Reddit search.
1]Remove any adblocker from browser and system
Ad blockers in the form of browser add-ons sometimes slow down websites and hamper their functionality. They are the main reason for the issue under discussion. Uninstall them and see if that makes Reddit search work, before moving on to another solution.
2]Problems with Reddit’s servers
Reddit’s servers may not always be operational. If the server is down or down, you may experience issues with Reddit search. This could be verified from their website here. It details Reddit availability.
Disabling filters (or changing them) would give you an approach to a wider variety of search results. The procedure for disabling filters is as follows:
On reddit.com, click the down-pointing arrow corresponding to your user profile. To select User settings.
Go to the Flow Parameters tongue.

Change the settings as desired.
If you search subreddits, you might consider extending the search period. By default, the results are those of the last 24 hours. You can change it in 1 year or all the time.
4]Use Google search instead of Reddit search
If you think Reddit search isn’t returning relevant results, you’re not alone. I never found it satisfying. You can use Google search to find results on Reddit. Just type ” Reddit
Hope this helps!
