Search with quotations often includes irrelevant results

Search results using search terms in quotes include irrelevant games. Half the games in the screenshot I provided include the search terms I used in the quotation marks anywhere:

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Go to the Roblox website,
  2. Enter a search term with quotations.
  3. Click on the one that says “…in Experiences” from the list that appears.
  4. Repeat above as needed with different terms in quotes if bug is not replicated.

Alternatively, you can use the links below:

This happens across multiple web browsers and on different computers with same results on each;

Firefox on my PC

Chrome through remote desktop on a different computer in a different network

Expected behavior

Searches should only return games that actually have the search terms that I searched for in quotations.

Edit: minor wording change


Thanks for the report! I filed a ticket in our internal database.

I have a problem where… just in general Roblox’s search results are terrible.
It’s always irrelevant, I only find a few games matching what I searched.
I search up “Uncopylocked” and get the opposite, only see a few ones.

Yep. There’s even a related thread for searches without quotes: Search results showing games that do not mention the search term anywhere

Irrelevant search results for games in both cases.
