comment How should I make searching a relational database more efficient?
Second, it's a bit confusing what you're asking for. Can you edit your question to clarify a little about your large object graph and what it has to do with setting up searches? Right now I'm having a lot of trouble visualizing the problem you're trying to solve.

comment How should I make searching a relational database more efficient?
First off, a single string search as part of a web application (or any other system in which the possibility of a hostile user exists) is never a good idea. There are all sorts of little ways that a hostile user can manipulate query strings--even ones that someone is trying hard to sanitize properly--into creating a special query that hacks your database. This whole class of attacks is known as SQL Injection, and the only truly safe way to handle it is with parameterized queries.

comment When there's no TCO, when to worry about blowing the stack?
@Giorgio: Umm... it is a well-known truth, and has been for decades. The complexity of proving correctness of code rises exponentially faster than the complexity of the code itself, making it infeasible to the point of impossibility to produce any proof worthy of the term for non-trivial code. Did you seriously not know that, or are you trolling me?
