What am I not understanding about using Google as a search tool for finding topics in the forums?

If I use - site:www.autohotkey.com/board/forum/48-support/ "search term" - google will only show me the 'page' listing of various topics of a forum or its sub-forum as the search result.
It will not show the individual topics as search results so that I can go directly 'into' the topic.

When I select one of the 'page' results, I've got no way of knowing what google thinks is the one which might contain what I'm searching for.

I've seen other posts discussing the almost useless search feature of this forum, so I'm trying to do what several others are doing by using google to find the topics hoped for.

Thanks,
weg
