Better Search

A more accurate search

Better Search is an extension allowing to have more relevant search results.
It uses principle of weighted search by attributes (title and manufacturer), to calculate the relevance more accurately.

Magento, by default, is looking for all products containing the keywords in their content (title, description, color, size, ...).
By searching for "keyboard", then it is inevitable to have products talking about keyboard in the search results, independently of their "relevance".
A computer containing the sentence "Sold without keyboard" will be listed too, with the same relevance level than the keyboard itself.

In order to list the products containing the word "keyword" in their title, Bettersearch allows weighting of attributes "title" and "manufacturer". The title will be 2, 3 or 4 times more important than the description. These values are fully configurable by the admin.

Extension appreciated

Une recherche plus précise

Better Search est une extension permettant d'avoir des résultats de recherche plus pertinents.
Elle utilise le principe de la recherche pondérée sur les attributs titre et marque d'un produit, pour calculer la pertinence de façon plus précise.

Magento cherche par défaut tous les produits contenant le ou les mots-clés dans le contenu du produit (titre, description, marque, couleur, matière, ...).
En cherchant  le mot "Clavier", il est alors inévitable d'avoir des produits parlant de clavier remonter dans les résultats et ce indépendament de leur "pertinence".
Un ordinateur vendu seul avec comme description "vendu sans clavier" remonterait ainsi au même niveau que notre clavier vendu séparement.

Afin de faire remonter les produits contenant le mot "clavier" dans leur titre, Bettersearch permet une pondération des attributs "titre" et "marque". Le titre sera ainsi 2, 3 ou 4 fois plus important que les termes de la description. Ces valeurs sont entièrement paramétrables par l'utilisateur.

Une extension appréciée

Cette extension est installée systématiquement sur les sites e-commerce réalisés par notre société advisa. Elle a été développée suite à de nombreuses réflexions quant à la qualité des résultats de recherches Magento. Elle répond aujourd'hui parfaitement à la demande de nos clients.

Unable to install, no support given. When trying to uninstall this module, it broke our complete webshop, both frond-end and back end. Had to restore from server back up to get back online. No response is given by Advisa, creator of this module. I still have the plugin installed while i do not want to have it at all. I would strongly discourage anyone from buying / installing any plugins from this company. March 29, 2013
This module destroys my back end when I uninstalled it! Had to restore my shop from the backup. February 7, 2013
Installs and works well, however trying to access any page of search results beyond the first page of results breaks the site. Looks to be some sort of Javascript error. January 10, 2013
I installed this extension on 1.5.1 without any problem, I found the configuration pane at System -> Configuration -> Advisa Extensions -> Better Search, I refreshed the cache at System -> Cache Management and I reindexed data from Configuration -> Index Management. However, i still get irrelevant results from quick search. As a last step, I uninstalled this extension. January 2, 2013
