Hey Leora! It’s great to see your post! (Sorry for the delay - I was on holiday last week).
Are you open to a few pieces of feedback?
So on the first link, I think it could be strengthened with highlighting so folks can see words in context as their found from a search. Right now it’s italicized but I think highlighting would be even more effective.
Secondly on the first link - you might want to set items such as “Pages”, “People”, and “News” as filters. Right now browsing those categories requires a lot of vertical scrolling.
On the News search - I’d bring search up above the fold to make it more noticeable. I’d be interested in seeing if this boosts usage.
