Boosting Products In Search Results

When a set of products are returned in a response to a customer query, the ones with higher manual boosting are ranked higher vs. those with no manual boosting or lower manual boosting.

Follow the steps below to boost individual products:

  1. Login into Shopify Admin Panel → Apps → Klevu Search
  2. Choose the appropriate store from the drop down and Click on Promotions tab
  3. Click on the Product Level Boosting tab
    product-level-boosting-1
  4. By default, it shows the list of products and boosting scores of the products. Klevu maintains 3 different boosting scores for every product.
    • Product Level Score (PLS): Default value 1.0
    • Rule-based Merchandising Score (RMS): Default value 1.0
    • Self-learning Score (SLS): Default value 0.0

    The Applied Boosting Score is calculated based on the following equation.

  5. Here, you can apply the Product Level Boosting score. Search for the product that you want to boost and assign a boosting score. You can assign a boosting score (a decimal value) between 1 and 999 where 1 is the lowest boosting score and 999 is the highest one. By default, every product has a boosting score of 1.0. To deboost a product, use the boosting score between 0.1 and 0.9.
