Implementing an ecommerce product search

A presentation at Search Meetup Hamburg in in Hamburg, Germany by Alexander Reelsen

This talk will cover all the different aspects to keep in mind when running a product search engine in an ecommerce platform. That search engine is usually a direct driver for your conversion and thus needs to be handled with care. Starting with a small demo for facetted/aggregated search most of the talk will deal with more advanced topics like proper data modeling, further query strategies, ranking strategies, feedback loops and query parsing.
