    Search descriptions, not just titles
    Hi all,

    I am wondering if anyone knows a way to search product descriptions and not just titles.

    I am playing around with different ways to automate my data feeds, and the titles are too broad for me to narrow them appropriately. Any help/suggestions here would be extremely appreciated.

    Pete

    No, not currently. When we first had search descriptions working the search results were extremely broad and bad. We are working on a number of improvements, however, and advanced options.

    Allowing negative keywords would fix that problem.

    I'm not sure if this is related to "negative keywords" but I just discovered using the - (minus) sign before keywords when searching for products can be a huge help to me. I use this all the time with Google, but didn't realize it worked with popshops.

    I was searching for armoires and kept getting tons of jewelry armoires. So I tried my search as "armoire -jewelry" and got exactly what I wanted. Now I wonder what other tricks to searching for products exist that I didn't know before.

    Does it work for autofeed?

    Does it work for descriptions?

    The last time I tried it didn't

    I just looked through 18 pages (24 products per page) of autofeed and did not get a single "jewelry armoire" to come up so it appears to be working in that capacity.
