I have just managed to make the Relevance sort order display the correct way - with the most relevant products first - (desc)
Now, for some reason the search is determining some products to be more relevant than others when they in fact have less relation, i.e. fewer of the search term words in the title and description. I have checked and the results are definitely showing in the correct order (most relevant first)!
I am searching for product titles but the products with the same titles don’t display first? I am beginning to conclude that the search does not include the titles at all, just the description text, is this correct?
It may be worth noting I have the Enhanced Search extension added but as far as I understand this just puts more LIKE terms into the search AND instead of Fulltext.
Any guidance or anyone with a similar issue please comments.
