Boost a product

You can boost a product so that it occupies a higher position in the search results when your customers run a particular query. This can be helpful if you have new products in your catalog, or large stocks of some products, for example.

When you boost a product, a new rule is created automatically.

To boost a single product:

  1. In the Predictive Merchandiser board, turn on Interactive Mode.

  2. Enter a search term and run the query (or navigate using facets).

  3. Hover over a product.

    Boost product

  4. Click the up arrow.

    The product is boosted to the highest available position that isn’t already occupied by a pinned product. The Rules widget shows that a new rule has fired.

To boost multiple products:

  1. Turn on Interactive Mode.

  2. Enter a search term and run the query.

  3. Select each product you want to boost:

    • Hover over a product and turn on the checkbox Checkbox.

  4. Select Action > Boost.

    The Boost Products page is displayed, listing the products you’ve selected to boost.

  5. If required, change the default name in the Rule name box.

  6. Click on the Finish button.

    A new rule is triggered, and the selected products are boosted:

    Boost rule fired

Unboost a product

To remove boost from a product, hover over the up arrow and click the bin icon, or edit the appropriate rule directly.
