When I ask any question from It shows a list of question when I type my question on the text box. But unfortunately the list is too long and most of the questions are not relevant :(

I'm not sure how long Askbot has been around (new user), but the number of questions are not substantial. There are about 1300 questions. Compare that to something like Stackoverflow, about 3.5 million! That likely plays a significant role in the random returns you sometimes get. I guess the system says, 'something is better than nothing.'

Hi, Askbot was around since April 2010, we are creating open source software with mostly the same functions, but not trying to replace Stackoverflow:). Zahid actually has a good point - search is not returning relevant results, we should fix that. Actually your previous question is duplicate and I bet the dupe was not shown clearly when you were asking your question - that's what he meant, I think.
