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 taken into consideration by the search engine. This might give you more relevant search results. Such words as "a", "the", and some prepositions are disregarded by default.

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