+1. In addition I think this link should follow after visiting BOL/MSDN.

@Kev, have you saved some reference for that? I am asking because it was kind of very quick, and the question is not marked favorite as well.

Haha no! I just have a memory for common questions, that I answered. A couple of clicks and I found the right one....

Got that :) Moreover, It could also be quick by following the correct tags as well :) I have just tagged this one as well.

@Usman improving the search (and indeed improving the whole site) is something that is being worked on. We have discussed the ability to have a much better, advanced search, including searching questions/answers by user. Hang on in there, we'll get there!

Please check your table data some time if table data volume is low then it would not decrease the fragmentation but it will not decrease your performance.

Follow the links in the other answer I have linked to, and these MSDN articles will explain why the fragmentation cannot be reduced.
