Search Results Validator

Validator - our own tool for checking the search performance and validating the products search result.

It is useful:

  • to know why some products appear higher or lower in the search results or even not at all;
  • to validate the product's autocomplete speed;
  • to validate the product's regular search speed;

It is located at the System -> Search Management -> Validator section.

You can validate:

Validate search results - Test how quickly a product can be found.

Slow search speed is the result of low loading store page speed, as it takes a lot of time to load the resources. Also, it can be related to the cache configuration. In general, search speed can only be improved via a more precise store configuration.
