Search priority results

Setting search priority for product attributes in Magento Search extension

Extended Search calculates products' search weight and arranges search results accordingly.

Product 'Search Weight' metric is calculated dynamically for each query and is similar to what is used in major search engines. 'Search Weight' is based on the amount/ratio of product attributes used by customers when searching.

On top of that, the extension allows defining the priority for any product attribute. Thus you can adjust search results and change the way the product 'Search Weight’ is calculated.

3 options for search accuracy

Extended Search extension can easily process both simple and complex search queries. The module is equipped with 3 advanced options for search accuracy:

  • Any - shows the search results that contain the whole search query, separate keywords and their combinations.
  • All - delivers the results that have the whole search query and all its separate words combinations.
  • Exact - brings only exact matches.

Typos and misspelled queries

Dealing with typos and misspelled queries in Magento extended search extension

Extended Search extension lets you add synonyms for any search query. Thus, a customer will be suggested the correct variant of the misspelled query and will be able to find the desired product more quickly.

When customers entered queries incorrectly or they're misspelled, the "Did you mean ... " message is displayed on the search results page.

Search products by attributes

With Extended Search users can easily narrow down their search to a specific product attribute.

The extension helps to find more accurate results. For example, if a customer wants to find the products by ‘Apple’ only, they can choose a ‘Brand’ attribute and search only by ‘Apple’ brand.

Not satisfying

On October 21, 2016
outdated and not satisfying, poor implementation of design related things (CSS...)

Great search solution

On September 15, 2014
This extension is just great. I purchased it to improve my search without installing any search engines like sphinx or solr. This module provides amazing built-in search relevance. Support team helped to configure different attributes and to add search by attribute to the front-end.
The only minus is missing autocomplete functionality.
- Shennon

The best Magento search extension out there!!!

On July 26, 2014
The default Magento search sucks! Bye-bye irrelevant search results and HELLO Extended Search.

Stunning, relevant and the best in class! Have been using it for a couple of weeks, and hope that we'll get a larger increase in conversions as a result.

P.S. Had a glitch when we were installing it. Within 24 hours the issue was resolved (thanks Julia)!

Increased search conversion by 15%

On May 15, 2014
This extension is just great. I use it for about 2 months from now and my search conv. was increased by ~15%!!! I'm planning to install Sphinx to my server and give it a try. Thanks this ext supports the Sphinx integration as well.

Support is AAA+++
- Linda

It does the job.

Unfortunately Magento built-in search is useless. Extended Search Magento extension worked perfectly right out of the box. Afterwards, when I had questions about configuring Sphinx, support always replied promptly. Five stars from me.

The Best!

Another MageWorx Magento extension that just ROCKS!

Currently, I do not use it with Sphinx or Solr (but I will move to Sphinx in a while, I think, in order to take load off Magento).

I'm using it with the built-in Magento search engine (modified by this extension).

And I just made meta keywords attribute searchable in quick search. The search results are so much better now, AND I am able to manually influence certain searches just by adding some meta keywords to a product.

I highly recommend Extended Search. It improves dramatically the often bad search results Magento delivers by default.

A must have add on!

On December 31, 2012
Bought autocomplete extension first, but even after i made nicer the search result this not changed the fact that the default search functionality in Magento is weak. Works partially, but you get many bad results and sometimes you just can't find the right info. We only have 1500 products, but sometimes its unbelievable hard to find the right products..... but this is changed with this extension! Powerful add on with great search results. Not just find the products for you but the accessories also if you own a product range like that. Install was quick and easy. My best investment was this 2 extension. ---- the 3rd one was SEO Pro earlier but i almost forget that how smoothly that works in the backend :) Excellent support, quality add ons. Do not think twice to get it!

You can't go wrong!!

Everyone who uses Magento knows how horrible the built in search is... This extension coupled with the Search Auto complete extension is the best search solution out there. I have over 5500+ products on my site and you can search and find EXACTLY what you are looking for! The drop down with photos supplied by the Auto complete is icing on the cake!!! I have actually had many customers comment on our sites search feature and how much they love it!
- Ryan

By far the BEST search in the market!

On September 25, 2012
First, I just want you to know how pleased I am with the level of support and commitment this team has. It's astonishing to see such dedication to detail. I purchased the search auto complete, and combined with the extended search it's a really nice feature to have.

The team is a thrill to work with, and I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a better Magento experience.
