I have a Magento store and i have a problem with the search function. You need to type exactly the name of the product for it to show.

A coustomer did this search which shows zero results: http://www.nyklokke.no/index.php/catalogsearch/result/?q=NIXON+The+42+-+20+Chrono+All+Black&x;=58&y;=15

But the result should show this product and several similar ones: http://www.nyklokke.no/index.php/nixon-klokker/nixon-42-20-chrono-all-black-1405.html

So what steps can i do to make the search function more useful?

For better search in Magento store, you could try our extension: Product instant search. This free module is very easy and simple to install as well as use. You could check it out here: http://www.magestore.com/product-instant-search.html

I know that this thread has been already been around for some time, but since it ranks high in google search I believe that it would prove useful to more people to try the following I would like to suggest:

System > Configuration > Catalog > Catalog > Catalog Search >
Change Search type to \"Combine (Like and Fulltext)\”

This would change the search type so that not all of the product name needs to be searched for magento to spill out correct results.
