This page describes standard search functionality that might differ from Live Search.
The Search Results list includes all products that match the search criteria entered in the Quick Search box or the Advanced Search form. Every product list in the catalog has essentially the same controls. The only difference is that one is the result of a search query, and the other difference is the result of navigation.
The results can be formatted as either a grid or list and sorted by a selection of attributes. Pagination controls appear if there are more products than fit on the page. Use these controls to move from one page to the next. The number of records per page is determined by the Catalog Frontend configuration. For more information, see Product Listings.
skuproduct attributes only. All other product attributes are searched by the whole keyword, with the exact matching.
skuproduct attributes are based on the relevance, not exact matching. The most relevant matches, such as an exactly matched Product Name or SKU, are listed first. To search for an exact match, the customer can use double quotes in the search query. For example, a
WSH12-32-Redsearch query may return several products, sorted by the relevance. But a
"WSH12-32-Red"search query returns only one product with the exactly matched
This technique uses an attribute to create a keyword-based association between two products so that a search for either product returns results for both products. You can use keyword mapping to promote a product in search results where it otherwise would not appear.
The following example uses keyword mapping based on SKU. When either SKU is entered in the search box, both products appear in the results. The SKUs of the following configurable products are mapped, rather than the SKUs of product variations:

Product attributes that are enabled for catalog search can be assigned a weight to give them a higher value in search results. Attributes with a greater weight are returned before those with a lower weight. For example, if there are two attributes in the system, color with a search weight of 3 and description with a search weight of 1. A search for the word red returns a list of products with a color attribute value of
red, but does not return products with descriptions that contain the word red. In this example, the
color attribute has a greater defined weight than the
