Carsurvey.org Search 3.0

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
