    Hi,

    I’m having an issue with search results in the sense that they are not very accurate.

    For example; if a customer were to search for ‘cement’ they would be shown products with cement in the title as well as products with titles that include the word cement, such as ‘reinforCEMENT’. Please see the attached screenshot.

    I only want them to see products with the full word ‘cement’ as shown in the screenshot.

    Many thanks,
    Onur

    Hi!

    Thank You for the proper details, I’ve logged in and looked at your current configuration.

    The issue was, that you were using the default ‘OR’ keyword logic, which is to yield random matching keywords, anywhere within the text. I’ve changed that to an ‘AND’ logic with exact keyword matching. Also, the search override was not enabled, so the default WooCommerce page results were displayed. These are the changes that I made: https://i.imgur.com/itBvVON.png

    You should be seeing much more strict results now.

    Also, optionally, if you want to learn more about search logics and making more accurate results, I recommend these documentation chapters:
    Search logics and Search logics explained
    Index table introduction and Generating the Index table and Enabling the index table

    I hope I helped!

    Best,

    Hi Ernest,

    Quick question, I have products in the ‘[Cement’ category which do not include the word cement in the title.

    Is there any way of getting them to show up in the search results as well as the category is cement?

    Thanks,
    Onur

    Hi Onur,

    Yes, it is actually possible, by turnin on the Search in terms? option on the General Options -> Sources panel: https://i.imgur.com/m7iILfQ.png

    That should do the trick πŸ™‚

    Best,
