Improving search efficiency
Search efficiency of OSClass should be improved.
For example: The result set of keywords “house” & “houses” are totally different. Both the results should match.
Apart from title and description, the search query should also be searched on other columns like category, region, city & even custom columns.
For example: “Rented house Chennai” should also provide results by searching
1) rented houses in category field
2) Chennai in city field
This will be helpful in improving the search results.
We relay in MySQL’s FullText search engine. Applying it to other fields as locations could have negative repercussions as it will make your search slow. It could be done with a plugin, it’s not that hard, but then, many people will complaint that the search is slow.
