I'm trying to find using craft search "bitly" urls in body rich-text field in articles. It's for generation of list of popular articles. So if query is a link (like "http://bit.ly/1eZFQMY") search doesn't find anything.

Tried "fuzzy" search and all methods listed on craft search page.

Before Craft saves any keywords in the craft_searchindex table in the database, that content goes through a normalization process, including things like removing punctuation.

So the link "http://bit.ly/1eZFQMY" will actually get normalized to http bit ly 1ezfqmy.

If you really wanted to find all entries with bitly URLs in them, then using "http bit ly" should work.
