    Is there a way to also search the description or short description of a product? I am using the Pro Version.

    No the plugin does not support that -> because it is predictive search - in other words you type the letter 'a' and it starts returning results -

    Lets say you have 1,000 products and in the Products description 800 of term have the word 'a' example 'a good phone' or 'another mat' or atlas

    Every product with a word starting with the letter 'a' will show in the results - in other words the results are meaningless. Even Google does not do that - it ranks your page for 'Keywords' - it does not go out and actually do a live search of the content of hundreds of millions of sites for each letter you type - it has already crawled that content and ranked the content as 'keywords'

    Predictive search is 'Live Search' - in that it does not crawl and rank pages ready for delivery when someone types a 'keyword'

    Predictive search actually searches your entire database as the user is typing that is why it searches

    Product Name: Lite and Pro Version

    and in the Pro Version:
    Product SKU’s
    Product Categories
    Product Tags
    Posts Titles
    Pages Page Titles.

    In this months feature upgrade we are adding a feature where on the post or page Meta you will be able to add 'keywords' that you want associated with this post, page or products.

    That means say you have a product called 'supercalifragilistic' but has a common name like 'furball' you will be able to add that as a Predictive Search 'Key term' for this product - and when the user starts typing in 'fur...' the product will show in the results.

    You should see this in the feature update due out before the end of January. It will be a Pro Version feature only.
