Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I add some streets a couple of weeks ago. I see the streets on the map. Street could not found in search at osm and nominatim. What's wrong?

If you look at the top of nominatim it says Data: 2011/08/19. That is why your data from a couple of weeks ago is not in nominatim. If you want to help out you can donate.

this answer is quite easy to understand. just to be sure osm has a cash problem? If donate will help I do. But I will go the hard way by electronic funds. paypal is not acceptable.

As far as I know, this is currently not a hardware issue, but more that we do not have enough manpower with the necessary knowhow to move the OSM nominatim instance to a new machine.

Further I believe that we currently are actually using the Mapquest nominatim service (because of the situation mentioned above).
