This question Why do search engines ignore symbols? was closed in favor of this one https://stackoverflow.com/questions/5098078/why-is-it-so-hard-to-search-for-the-symbol-via-google.

So why did the first one get closed instead of the second one, if it's a more general and older question than the second one? I also don't think the second one is any better content-wise.


I agree that the closure doesn't make a lot of sense. The general question is definitely better in this case.

I voted to reopen the more general question and to close the more specific one as its duplicate.
