Live Search in Confluence does not return all of the results

I have a knowledge base within my self-hosted Confluence instance and have a few pages defined within this KB. When I search for a keyword within the LiveSearch macro, I find that certain pages with that keyword are returned, while others are not - In the case of the latter, the keyword is both in the title and the description.

My guess is there is something I am missing when I create these pages.

Below is an example of some of my pages - If I search for Shibboleth or Staff, those page entries are returned just fine. But items like DCL etc return nothing. 

I have already double checked both the Space and Page level restrictions and there aren't any.

Any ideas as to what I may be doing wrong?

Does it have anything to do with the dashes?  - DCL or is it not working with other examples without dashes?
