After spending far more time than I originally intended, I’ve just released improved search functionality to Carsurvey.org.
New features include:
- Phrase searching (via double or single quotes)
- Engine sizes can now be found, and the system understands that 1.6 and 1.6L (and similar variations) are searches for the same thing
- For reviews: results in key fields, such as manufacturer, model, and engine are now weighted above results in the faults and general comments text. This gives more relevant results for most searches
- Review results are weighted towards the longer reviews
