If it's specifically R that I am looking for I use the following link

If I were going to use google I would go to the advanced page and insert into the "Domain" field so as to restrict the search. As you have found out the letter R is ubiquitous. There are other search engines listed on the CRAN website that you can also use

However rpy is much less frequent. In fact google comes up with it straight away. From that I discovered that RPy has a mailing list Maybe you should try searching their archives

I hope that helps
