My name is not coming up in IMDB search. It's like I don't exist on IMDB. I am there in the Pro version, but not on regular. I can google search my name, and a link to my IMDB will pop up and I can view it from there, but my name is not coming up in IMDB search. I've tried from 2 computers and phone app. https://www.imdb.me/joshuabrokaw

The search suggestions mechanism appears to be mucked up. Instead of giving patrons a logically-functioning set of results in the drop-down display, the IMDb web developers commit resources into inundating visitors with unwanted giant thumbnails of trailers. Haha.

As that FAQ page explains, the search suggestions drop-down only includes a limited number of the site’s names and titles. The problem here seems to be that the name doesn’t show up in the regular site search either.

Peter, which is fine, but in this particular case, the name does not show up at all.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Ulrich Seidl can't be found on string search.

Right now, the director Ulrich Seidl, whose page is at https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0782430/ cannot be found by inserting his name in the search string. Several other people with similar names will pop up, but not him

I suppose, a more descriptive subject heading for this thread would be "Name not in IMDb search suggestions".

The name appears in both the search suggestions and the search engine now.
