Google Search Box Deleted Again-No Longer Functional

I have deleted once again the Google search box formerly located in the upper right hand corner. The search returns no results when a properly functioning search engine would return multiple hits. Instead, a search would simply return the entire last published post. 

For several weeks now, the Google box has been mostly worthless anyway. I could have a recent discussion of a new stock purchase, never before discussing that stock, where a competent search engine would return only one result. The Google search box would return results from 2009 or 2010 that would contain a tag from that recent post, but none of the information would actually be contained in those old posts. I have no idea how Google screws it up so bad. 

The search box in the upper left corner still works but returns an entire post with the relevant search term, making it less useful that a properly functioning google search box, which may be a bridge too far for Google.
