Advanced Search Queries


Guest

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am interested in knowing what my customers are searching on with the standard advanced search or just the normal search query that comes with osCommerce. Is there someway to find out what a person searches on other than looking through the logs of the webserver? Is there perhaps a contribution that enhances the search function? I have searched but not found anything usable.

 

Regards

So I can only rely on my logs of the webserver or has someone found something ?

well, you could create a table and insert the search string whenever someone presses search.

That sounds all logical enough. Care to enlighten me (and others). I am not expert with MySQL. But I like to play around with it. Just not with my production server :sweating:

But where would one find the results there. Look directly into the database?

Richard,

 

I'm surprised nobody pointed you at this contribution.

It's called Search Enhancements, works pretty flawlessly on my store.

Thank you jacob.

 

I will look into this one as it sounds really good and something that I could use.

Finally gotten around to installing. It took me a bit of time as I got 4 languages to update but otherwise it is very well done. One must remember to not change the keywords to other languages if you are working with various languages since the keyword will be found in one language can't be found in the other. So there is not point in making in any references there.

 

Regards

I frankly never heard of this one, must say, looks promising

Thought i'd give this a bump, i think everyone needs to run this mod on their store, the default search function isn't very good as i have customers typing in words and phrases that should list products but they don't show and as a result i'm probably losing sales. Also I used to track this with google adwords now i can get a fuller picture within the admin screen! Perfect..

 

You can see a working version here: www.peachesandplums.co.uk (contains minor adult content, shouldnt offend)
