Description

When I go to https://help.libreoffice.org/ and do a search using the search bar on top, it gives results from all over the web.

Let's say I search for the word "template".
The first two results take to the extension site's template center, the third is a dictionary definition, the fourth is a FAQ entry from the documentfoundation wiki page, but there's also Squarespace and Qubes OS templates among the results on the first page. None of the first page results are from the help site.

I'd say, this particular search should be restricted to the help site.

The custom search is restricted to LibreOffice and TDF realms, and explicitely vetoes "office.com" and "microsoft.com". A mistake slipped in en-US and has been fixed.

NOte that the results often indicates the old wikihelp, this is because Google is slow in indexing the new website format.
