I have a Godaddy online store and I recently noticed something wrong with the results provided by the search box.
If you search for one single word it works perfectly, but add 2 words that are not in sequence then it fails to find anything.
e.g if I had a title that said "Car Bus Boat", and searched for "Car Bus" the search would find it, but if I enter "Car Boat" then it says 0 results.
Not sure of this is a recent change, but this used to work fine and something has changed.
Anyone else had this issue?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I contacted Godaddy support to be told that this was the way their search works. Not on any other website I've ever been on.
Surely this is a pretty fundamental point of the search; to search the entire title?
I have been trying to get them to fix this since I started my store with them a couple of years ago. It has gotten so bad I am going to have to move to another provider in the hopes that their team can properly code a search function. A properly working search is pretty basic stuff and to have one that doesn't work is a disaster. How many sales are Go-Daddy stores losing because of this? Go-Daddy is losing this customer over this and a lack of a way to stop spammers using my contact form.
@schumie-spares This topic has been discussed at great length in another thread. Please refer to that thread here:
