[API-users] Dataset search on keyword broken?

I'm trying to search for datasets with a certain keyword. Every query I try
though returns 0 results:


Some datasets do have that keyword though, e.g.
http://data.inbo.be/ipt/resource?r=bird-tracking-gull-occurrences, but I
noticed keywords are not displayed on GBIF dataset pages:
http://www.gbif.org/dataset/83e20573-f7dd-4852-9159-21566e1e691e, though
they are available via the API:

According to the documentation:

keyword parameter = Filters datasets by a case insensitive plain text
keyword. The search is done on the merged collection of tags, the dataset
keywordCollections and temporalCoverages.

Searching for the machineTag "13" (value for key "crawl_attempt") or
temporalCoverage "breeding season 2013" which are both available in the
above dataset, doesn't return anything either:


Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug?
