If you look at http://www.bcswebdesign.co.uk/wjod I would like to use your plugin to replace the search facility that came with the theme. I would like to know how to setup your plugin so that posts can be found by the name of the post (business name), location (e.g. Belfast, Newtownards, Dublin, etc.) and category (e.g. Bridal Fashion, Photographers & Videographers, etc.).
Where in each post do I put these details on your plugin? Is it through the tags at the bottom?

If you want to use filters, then I would recommend using custom taxonomies or custom fields to store that information. You could use for example the post category for location, and maybe a custom field for the category – or vice-versa.
The search tags in the editor are to add additional phrases that the plugin will match, whenever someone types them in, it has no connection to the filters. To filter posts or any custom post types, the posts have to be categorized in some way: either by taxonomies, custom fields or tags.Best,
