Navigate to: Marketing > Site Search > Boost & Bury.
Boosting is a multiplier that enables an Administrator to manually control the ranking weights of Products to appear higher or lower on the search results and/or Category pages. By assigning numerical values to a Product(s), you can adjust where the Product(s) appear on the search result and/or Category pages.
Imagine you have recently acquired several palettes of a Product for a very attractive price and want to sell these items quickly. A Site Admin could enter a boost value to help push the product upon the search result/category pages.
The Boost Value is not the only factor that controls the ranking of your Products. Different factors play into where your Products appear. You may have to experiment with different values to achieve the desired result.
Note: Valid Boosting values are 0.00 – 1000.00. 1.00 is the default value.
