SQL can improve your site search by:

  • Indexing your product catalog: You can create and maintain a full-text index of your product catalog to power your site search engine, making it faster and more accurate.
  • Implementing relevance scoring: By implementing relevance scoring for your search results, you can display the most relevant products at the top of the results page, regardless of their popularity.
  • Supporting synonyms and abbreviations: This way customers will still be able to find the products they're looking for even if they don't use the exact keywords that you have used in your product descriptions.
  • Handling misspellings: Customers can still find the products they're looking for even if they make a typo in their search query.
