Everybody makes mistakes. tradeit’s search tool caters for spelling errors or typos and still delivers the same results. For multiple search passes, fuzziness can be applied to some and not others thus promoting exact matches above fuzzy matches for example.
Every product is scored against up to six key metrics and ranked accordingly, meaning your most popular products, and thus those most likely to sell, are higher up the search results automatically.
Boost or moderate products within the rankings by weighting the importance or otherwise of each of the six metrics giving you scope to affect the order in which products appear based on what is most or least important to your business.
Pin items to the top of the search results based on certain definable criteria like NEW , IN STOCK, IN SEASON, BRAND, ON OFFER, PRODUCT GROUP or any other attribute you want. Even combine and order them.
Conduct multiple search passes in one and weight the importance of each to promote exact matches or those based on fields that you deem more important (i.e. product name), over those deemed less important.
People don’t think or speak the same. Our algorithmic stemmer caters for variations of words and language inflections automatically. For example a search for "mothers day", would also return results for "mother's day" and "mothering sunday" as well.
Cater for user differences, colloquialisms and brand names by building a list of synonyms (including one-way options) based on your product set. A search for “laptop” should also return “MacBook” and “netbook” for example, but a search for "MacBook" wouldn't return all laptops as it's more specific.
Show suggestions based on indexed products, rather than previous users' searches, meaning results are delivered immediately and with more logic - our search tool doesn't rely on a history of previous searches to build its intelligence.
Alongside being able to boost products by metrics, merchants can boost or moderate an entire product group’s ranking. Product groups can defined by the merchant and contain any items they want. NEW
Upon administrator login, merchants can see why products are ranking where they do against any search term and display scoring against each criteria that is defining that ranking in each instance. NEW
Match anywhere within a keyword rather than just the start, meaning more matches are returned. For example a search for "phone" would return "iPhone" and "smartphone" as well
Display both product and non-product content in the search results, including blog articles, videos, information pages and much more.
This enables merchants to combine multiple search fields against any search pass to ensure that they return the most accurate matches. For instance, 'Product Name' + 'Colour'. NEW
Display matching categories, alongside product and content matches, directly in the search results.
Output different results for content and blog articles so they are clearly shown separately in your search results. NEW
Configure multiple search passes to be ‘boosted’ and thus executed before other search passes. NEW
Get more consistent results with the removal of stop words like "i", "to" and "the".
