Why am I getting unrelated items in my site search?

Order Notification email is not going through from magento using build-in functionality and even from SMTP Pro
How can i export multiple table values as a single file

I’ve had a play around with various settings – previous to me running the site I realized that when you searched for something it wasn’t bringing up anything related, as the site wasn’t using descriptions/meta keywords or anything in the search.

For a one word search it now seems to work, but as soon as I added a number after it just brings up pages of non related items.

In this example I search “Linx” and it brings up the products where I have added the word linx to the meta keywords or description. As soon as I put “Linx 8” in it brings up lots of items that aren’t related at all and don’t have the term “linx 8” anywhere in the product pages.

I thought that maybe making it unable to search by SKU or price might help but it seems that it only made a small dent in the amount of items that are coming up.

I’ve only just started using magento so apologies if this is a quick fix but I am stumped!

    It depends on your configuration but it sounds like you’re using a ‘LIKE’ based search which would scan your catalog for ‘Linx’ and ‘8’ separately. Magento does have fulltext search capabilities which are more advanced.

    Reference this answer for a more comprehensive explanation of your options.

To create code blocks or other preformatted text, indent by four spaces:

    This will be displayed in a monospaced font. The first four 
    spaces will be stripped off, but all other whitespace
    will be preserved.
    
    Markdown is turned off in code blocks:
     [This is not a link](http://example.com)

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
