Another suggestion cud be that after making a query and before submitting it to forum we cud introduce a intermediate stage where we can produce search result based upon the key words in that query and if user find any of them fruitful he can stop from finally submitting it to the forum.It can reduce traffic i guess .. better performance ...

I wasn't speaking in generaly terms. We currently use UBB, and are looking into Jive. That is to say, we didn't build this site from scratch.

Interesting. Just to show results would clutter the screen, I am afraid... But I believe, there are some metrics on how well a set of words matches a search pattern... We could calculate and when it exceeds some point put a warning:
"similar question was asked 141 times in this forum. Click here for most relevant threads"
Would be interesting to try to implement, if we had some free time and labor!
