I searched for the album "Pirate Adventure" by Various Artists but Deezer Search found 10 other albums but not this one, even though Google found it just fine; WHY????

It could be that the album is not available in your country. Deezer won't serve it to your after a search on their website, but because it actually exists Google has indexed it, and will return the result. I've been finding that quite often, unfortunately with albums of one of my all-time favorite bands.

I thought that, too, but I'm in the US, and if you click on the link, you will see that the album is available in the US. I think it's just another example of Deezer's poor search capabilities: exact search results are ranked low in the list by their algorithm, or they don't show up at all.

I don't know who marked this as answered or solved, but it's not. @Flo.Deezer, was it you?

I'm not in the US, so I can't say about availability there - but it is available where I'm from, and what you say is true: searching the title on Deezer does not bring up this particular album, although obviously it exists. Is this a random bug, or something else? I guess only people at Deezer can answer.
