Magento supports extra search keywords to be added to find the product, this is done manually.
i.e. you sell a “Walking Stick” you could add “Crutch” to the attribute so that both returned a product in the search.
My idea for a feature is along these lines but for “Error tolerant searching”.
Please see this online tool… http://tools.seobook.com/spelling/keywords-typos.cgi
If you enter the keyword “walking stick” it generates typo’s/miss-spelling such as…
(and hundreds more...)
Could a feature be added so that it could scan the product in the areas it would use for the search and apply this automatically?
This would improve magentos search feature tremendously.
What do you all think? Anyone want to start developing?
