Question on Site Search


Guest

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Can anyone help me on my site search? If I type in blenders with an "s" the search results is "0" If I type in blender without the "s" the results will show all my blenders, this is consistent throughout all my products... You can view the site at: http://www.kitchenconveniences.com. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

Pat

P.S.

Feel free to by anything...

None of your products are entered as "blenders".

 

They're all singular "blender".

 

You're trying to get the code to do something it's not programmed to do.

If I suggest you edit any file(s) make a backup first - I'm not perfect and neither are you.

 

"Given enough impetus a parallelogramatically shaped projectile can egress a circular orifice."

- Me -

 

"Headers already sent" - The definitive help

 

"Cannot redeclare ..." - How to find/fix it

Thanks for the reply..

Should I add plural names to all the products in the description? Would that resolved this issue?

Thanks,

Pat

Probably, but I wouldn't.

 

After all, are you going to add an s to everything so people can search or coffee makers, and ice cream makers, etc.?

:unsure:

 

Personally, I think it would make your site look very unprofessional.

 

My motto is you can't make anything "foolproof" because "fools" are too ingenious...

;)

I was thinking of search words that you couldn't see. The font would be in white (invisible) and with more search able words...I'm going to give it a test run...or an off site search engine, unless anyone else has any suggestions.

Thanks,

I've heard that search engines (like Google) don't like it when you "hide" text by making it the same color as the background.

 

It's your site's funeral, not mine...

I have heard this, too. Best not to do it, and besides, it's time-consuming. Try to work the plural words into the text descriptions gracefully. "The least expensive of our blenders!" "The most popular of the KitchenAid blenders!" "Most households have five blenders!" and so on.

 

Best wishes,
