What are Stop Words and when to use them?

With the Stop Words feature, you can disable certain words from the search. The words from the Stop Words list will be filtered out and won't be considered by the search engine. This feature might give you more relevant search results. Such common words as "a", "the", and some prepositions are disregarded by default (see Stop words by default).

We suggest using this feature if your customers often use a particular word in a search phrase, making the search less accurate.
