I posted this question after searching a few times(through Google and within ELU Search).
Turns out , it had already been asked and answered before here and consequently, my question was marked as duplicate.
My disappointment lies in the fact that even the Questions that may already have your answer dynamic list did not match my question to the already existing one. I guess it matches tags and few words from the title and body to populate the list.
Do I need to configure anything additionally to get the most appropriate matches?
What are the best practices to avoid duplicates, as someone who wants to ask?
I can only search a few times but I need some support from the SE's search algorithms to come up with the questions that already exists. It will save everyone's time I believe.
