Enhanced search facilities


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


As an SEO consultant I'm very interested in enhancing the search facilities within Oscommerce. I have installed the search_enhancements mod. from within hte contributions and that has gone part of the way to making the system better but I needed to find a way to have the number of keywords count towards a better ranking in those search results. i.e. if there is a higher number of occassions of that word in the description text then it appears nearer the top of a search on those keywords.


It would also be great if titles could be weighted as well.


If there is someone out there who has done some work on search mods and would like to have a chat about Google behaviour and rankings then send me a message. I'm not a programmer so can't help there but I do have a lot of experience of Google and the other search engines and how they weigh the importance of a page (the pages being in this case the product pages).


Or if anyone knows of any work being done in this area then please let me know - I would like to contribute.


Best regards,


Nick Wilsdon
