Weighted Search

Magento Go lets you assign a weight to any product attribute that is used in catalog search. The weight is a numerical score from 1-5 that determines the rank or value of the item.

To set the search properties of an attribute:

  1. From the Admin panel, select Catalog > Attributes > Manage Attributes.
  2. Find the attribute in the list, and click to open the record.
  3. Scroll down to the Frontend Properties section, and do the following:
    1. To include the attribute in Quick Search box queries, set Use in Quick Search to “Yes.”
    2. To include the attribute as a field on the Advanced Search form, set Use in Advanced Search to “Yes.”
    3. To establish the search value of the attribute, set Search Weight to a number from 1 to 5.
    4. When complete, click the Save Attribute button.
