Hi, I have a web app, and i learned that the keyword field searches the web app item name, and description, in the description we've added lots of content with related terms to tryto help search.
For example, I have a web app named " hotels and motels" and the description field has some content with various combinations of those words,
if i search "hotel", its a result, if i search "motel" its a hit, but if search "hotels motels" it doesn't come back as a result,
if i search "hotels and motels" does it returns a result. should the hotels and motels make it a result, why does the word and,stop it from being a result, not much will be found unless i stop people from searching with more than one word?
The multiple word search isn't really the best as you have found. I think it has room for improvement and that's one of the things that needs to be improved. Unfortuantely, there's currently no workaround for that.
It could be better, but the more i think about it, with web apps usuallly being quite niche in their seachability, I don;t know if i want more of a broad search now.
I realize now that i wouldn't want such a broad search like google that can pair any two words out of a 300 page site and call it a match, google routinely responds with at least half a million results, no matter what you type in... so with that in mind, almost any query to a web app would pull most if not all webapp items into the results every time, which would be pointless forthe user and I can't imagine good for response times when clicking search
The only thing i would change on web app search is maybe ignore stop words, like "and" "it" etc, so only the main keywords are being matched
