At times, It is needed that magento search acts smartly. Clients often need some products to be shown up, on the sites’s search page, even when the search term do not match the product name, or description(Synonyms). These can be added using search terms functionality provided by magento: Admin -> Catalog-> Search terms. But this does not provide us to add desired products to the search page.

Solution i found here was:
1) Create a New attribute for containing search terms. ex: search_keys
2) Create it as a TEXTAREA attribute for any type of product.
3) Keep “Use in quick search” as yes.
5) Assign it to the default attribute set.
4) For all required products, input all desired keywords, comma separated, in the new attributes textarea.
5) Reindex the catalog search.

For other details about attribute creation see attached screen shot.

- Significantly increase relevance of search results
- Specify search priority for attributes
- Enable customers to easily find the necessary products
- Choose the search type – ‘like’, ‘fulltext’ or ‘combined’
- Highly-configurable autocomplete feature

Hi. I thought about instant search without SOLR and Sphinx, and the best options was Itoris Instant Search - very smart cached searches, outstanding speed and reaction just after 2 chars. You can even define product attributes to be included in searches. See image attached with speed test.

Hello,

I would advise you the Search Autocomplete and Suggest Magento extension that delivers the most relevant search results to your store visitors and allows displaying product name, price, picture, and even a short description in the dropdown list.

Visit the product page of the extension and learn more about its features, try out demo and view the screenshots.
