Quick Search - not finding text on pages

When searching for text using the quick search function and entering 'CR Register' which appears on a page - this page is not found in the quick search drop list of results. We need the quick search to do this, how can we get this to work?

Hi Lisa,

* Navigate to Confluence Admin > Cache Statistics

** Click flush all

* Navigate to Confluence Admin > Content Indexing

** Rebuild the index

Hope that helps.

Hi Ryan,

I have done that and now our search is worse than previously. If I try to search for 'CR Register' which is a link text on a page - it does not display that page in the results. However if I put the labels 'CR' and 'Register' on the page then it finds them. I don't think this is very good. Our users are not going to label every link text that appears on a page.

Why is it not finding the text that is clearly on the page?
