Improved storefront search - better results 🔍

Customers can more easily find what they're looking for using improved storefront search in English and Japanese.

The improved search applies weights to specific fields, to make matches for search terms in those fields appear higher in results. For example, we've given titles more weight than descriptions, so products with titles that match search terms are listed above those with descriptions that match.

We've also applied stemming to some fields, which reduces words to their root form. So if someone searches for "knitted sweater", a product called "knit sweater" matches, because "knit" and "knitted" have the same root form.
