Google is in charge of Google search results. Stack Exchange just provides its content as a website and isn't in charge of what Google decides to provide to you. There's no agenda to boost any specific game or edition. Have you tried adding “D&D 3.5e” to your Google searches? If that returns D&D 5e results for you anyway, that's more on Google ...

This is a job for Stack Exchange Data Explorer ("SEDE" for short), like SevenSidedDie pointed out! Search can only do so much. Stack Exchange makes full data dumps weekly to SEDE which are fully searchable using SQL, which lets us do all kinds of advanced data searching, like this thing. I've written up an SEDE query for this. It's a big'un, but it's been a ...

The tags we have here on RPG.SE, like "dnd-5e", are poor for external SEO purposes and lead to the effect you see. We tried early in the site to engage with SE central on a fix in Need tag abbreviation expansion/synonyms for SEO purposes (and similar Q on meta.SE) but never got any interest/attention.

SEDE to the rescue This is outside what you can do with directly site tools, however we have SEDE for those who know the secret tongue of databases. While my skills are limited, I did modify something similar into what I think you want. Of note, it'll return all questions which have been edited to add the specified tag. It'll list them by ID, with higher ID ...

You're looking for the one-on-one tag, and there's also the two player keyword, though that more often hits on a circumstance with one GM and two players. You might also prefer adventure to campaign and its siblings.

You can use the search bar with user:30214 to find all posts from you. You can easily find this search entry by clicking on your profile - it automatically fills the search bar in the upper part of the site. After that you click on "active" in the row that shows on the left side the number of posts found (161 for you) and on the left the different sorting ...

There isn't a simple way using the site's own search feature, but the site's raw database is cloned regularly and can be accessed via SQL queries at the StackExchange Data Explorer. I couldn't find an existing query that exactly matched what you're looking for with a cursory search, but I did find Popular Questions without Nice Answers which says it returns ...

The thing I was looking for specifically, exists in the Help center. I just had a strong difficulty in finding it. https://rpg.stackexchange.com/help/searching Provides precise guidance on using each modifier available for the search function, to included the parameters and logical tools. I attempted to delete the question, but was harried against it by ...

We use the extra parameter to log the behavior of users using search and to measure if any change we make to search is effective. In particular we use that parameter to determine which were the rank and relevance of the result you clicked. TL:DR; You need to ask the add-on author to fix the add-on, as we don't have many other feasible ways of getting this ...
