Search for shared decks doesn't search keywords?

When sharing a deck we're asked for keywords. But, searching ( seems to only search the deck name. In Anki 1, the search also searched keywords.

Is this a bug? Yet to be developed?

    Searches are performed on the title and tags, but not the description.

    I should have given an example. Can you look at:

    The tags contain, for example, "Commerce". But, searching for that word doesn't produce a result here:

    Note: while we're on the topic, I think it would be more user-friendly if the search would begin when we press enter while our cursor is in the field. (It doesn't. We have to move the mouse and click the "search" button.).

    You should not use commas in the tags. I agree about enter, but I
    think this is already on the issue tracker.

    Thanks, I'll remove the commas next time and let you know if it doesn't work.

    A related point: I think the tags should be included in the page so they contribute to Google's indexing. Maybe as HTML keyword meta tags?
