Test Your Search Engine

The Playground is the section where you can test your search engine to see the results and assess the configuration settings for your product feed. It is located in your Admin Panel under Search Engines > Playground.


By default, on accessing the playground catalogue, a match_all query type is displayed listing all products in your data feed.

In the search bar, you can search for a specific product. On the right side of the screen you'll see three columns: Auto, Manual and Score.

The score is a number that Doofinder gives to each search result based on the relevance of that result to the performed search query.

You can change this score using auto and manual boosting. Automatic boosting is calculated based on the products that receive the most clicks by customers, while manual boosting involves manually assigning a value to enhance the visibility of a specific item.

Whenever you make a change in your boosting section (Dynamic Re-ranking), you can come to the playground area to check how that change affects the product.

In case you have configured a Banner, Search Suggestions, Custom Results and Synonyms for a product, and (or) a category of products, this too will be displayed when you search for the product(s) on the Playground's search bar.

To display product information, simply click on the "+" symbol.
