Normal indexes do nothing for full-text searches.  You need a full-text 
index of some sort.  MySQL has support for those, but it's not really 
all that great.  There are much better full-text search engines out 
there, like Lucene or Sphinx.  I don't know how well either would do on 
a Raspberry Pi.
