Make sure your customers see only the most relevant results when they search your Magento site with the Advanced Search with Weighted Attributes Magento Extension by Activo Extensions. This powerful Magento search extension is a must have improvement over the default Magento search. Out-of-the-box Magento search provides limited configurations and often returns inaccurate results.
Fix that problem once and for all by adding Advanced Search with Weigthed Attributes to your store. It is simple to setup and provides advanced search functionality for your entire product catalog without the necessity to install additional 3rd party systems like Solr or Sphinx. Advanced Search with Weighted Attributes also includes the following useful features.
Weighted attributes are the key to dialing in your search results just how you want them. Advanced Search with Weighted Attributes Magento extension puts the power in your hands and allows you to decide which attributes are more important. For example, if product name and brand are more important than text found in the description, simply assign those attributes a higher weight.
Our totally revamped auto complete feature now includes frequently used words and phrases and is a complete overhaul of the default Magento functionality. The Advanced Search with Weighted Attributes Magento extension will build the search index (dictionary) with words and phrases from your product catalog. It uses a smart algorithm to build phrases consisting of up to 3 words by default (this is a configurable option). It then provides automatic suggestions to the user from this dictionary as the user types (starting with second character). This overrides Magento's default functionality completely as the default functionality is prone to errors and security issues.
Similar to "Did you mean... ?", our auto suggest feature automatically offers the best suggested phrase in case of a typo or a bad search term. This increases the likelihood that user will find what they are looking for and provides great product discovery opportunities.
Advanced Search with Weighted Attributes uses Magento's internal indexing mechanism to build the words dictionary (index). It maintains a separate index for each feature (autocomplete and autosuggest). You can specify which particular product attributes should be included in the index separately per feature. The index is invalidated every time you edit product attributes in the catalog. Tiu can either reindex data manually by going to System > Index Management or configure it to automatically reindex on the daily basis via cron job.
A list of "stop words", which will NOT be included in the index, can be included and used with Advanced Search with Weighted Attributes. ost English language adjectives and articles are automatically included as stop words, so they do not skew your search results.
The Advanced Search with Weighted Attributes Magento extension also has built-in search refinement similar to the functionality provided by our FREE Catalog Search Refinement extension. This additional functionality makes search results more relevant by including only the results that contain ALL search terms. By default Magento includes items that include ANY search term, which usually produces loose search results. For example, when users search for "green shoes" with default Magento search, results would show all products that are green and all products that are shoes. This feature can be enabled/disabled within the configuration settings.
