Magento – Catalog Search Refinement

The Catalog Search Refinement Magento Extension by Activo is a very simple (free!) extension that makes default Magento search results more meaningful and relevant. It allows your users to refine their search when they use multiple search terms.

By default, when user enters multiple keywords in the search box, Magento will search for the items containing ANY of the search keywords. This does not make much sense in real life. Say, user tries to find some red shoes and enters „red shoes“ as their search term. Default Magento search will find everything that contains word „red“ and everything that contains word „shoes“ — i.e. all red clothes and all shoes in the store.

This extension modifies your default search behavior to show only pages that contain ALL search keywords. So in the example above users will see only pages that have both „red“ and „shoes“ in the product title or description, which is much more meaningful.

Compatible with: 1.5, 1.6, 1.6.1,, 1.7
