Well, no more numeric searches? :(
Hi Gomah – what do you mean by that?

On themeforest.net you can still do something like that: http://themeforest.net/search?term=2918523

Not anymore on graphicriver. :/

Ah ok- thanks for picking that up – thats a bug and we shall fix it

Hi again – another quick update, we are continuing with the roll out of the new search platform. As of today GraphicRiver will be completely on the new platform. We are increasing the number of new search users on VideoHive and 3D Ocean and rolling out ThemeForest and CodeCanon to a small set of users.

If you have any search related feedback or notice something that doesn’t look quite right – it would be great if you could let us know via the feedback form.

Hey Michelle – it’s great reading the updates!

I was curious, as I’ve seen a few people ask here on this thread, what exactly should we see with the changes… better results or something more wiz-bang?

Thanks Jonathan :) To everyone who has asked what they should see. Most of the hard work is in the backend -we’re laying down some strong foundations for future work so not too much is visible for you guys.

We have made some changes to the algorithm to improve the quality of the search results so there will be differences in the order of results compared to the previous search, which is the most visible difference.

Check out the Marketplaces Video Update if you are interested in finding out a bit more about the new platform and some other things we’ve been up to.

I watched the video, everything seems very promising and interesting!

Questions:

How is this affecting the tags and the description we use in our items?
Should we focus to put relevant keywords in the tags or rather in the description field?

I just made a simple test search using “google maps”. Surprisingly, the first two results in the list do not have anything important in common with searched keywords…. Is the search algorithm a secret? Can you share it with us?

Regarding @greenline’s question, the two at the top have google and maps as separate tags. Shouldn’t the algorithm show the items with Google maps as 1 tag first? These items would be more relevant imho. Thanks!

Edit: or are we not part of the small set of users it’s been ruled out to…

Until they announce “Implemented for 100% users”, there is no point in testing the search to find the improvements (as the changes are back end ones). It is easy to guess that currently the feedback form is for receiving bug reports if anyone finds. Wait..

New search results for University include Universe and Universal:

http://graphicriver.net/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&term=university

There are probably more word groups with similar problem.
