Search Words

When entering “Search Words” into a particular product…

  1. Do these words pertain to just the search feature on my store or do they have any SEO value as well?

  2. Are they case sensitive or should I be taking pains to re-enter a lot of words in upper and lower case?

  3. Does CSC take into account any of the other product's data if I don't specifically mention it under the “search words” heading (i.e. product code, the category it's in etc.)

Hello Michael,

Thank you for your message.

The Search words field stores a list of words by which a product should be easily found in the built-in search facility. Such keywords are not related to SEO and you should not worry about the case sensitivity matter. If you do not specify any search words for a product, the system will keep searching it by its name, short and full description.

Should you need any further information, please do not hesitate to ask me.

Thank you.
