Make comments searchable

submitted on October 11, 2011 by orangearrows in "Buxr Website / Contests"
Comments are not searchable currently. If we are going to update deals in comments they need to updated in title + description otherwise they would never show up on search.

Try searching for TARGET PHOTO. You would not find the $2 coupon which is out there and gives you 20 free prints.

Now click this link >

You see that the deal has been updated in comments.

I recommend putting that as a separate deal. It's a good deal and was useful to me. I been looking for photo printing coupons for many days and never knew they existed for target.

    Good tip on updating the title and/or description. I will make sure to do that in the future, and HouTex and shawndiaz should do so as well.

    As for making comments searchable, I don't think it is a good idea because it will slow down search (due to the large volume of comments) and will add a lot of unrelated information to the search results.

    I have a better idea. What if each deal had a commonly editable area under the description, something anyone, could edit for unlimited (or very long) time. You guys could then add any updates or additional relevant info to that area, and it would be searchable.

    What do you think?

      Yup adding "UPDATE:....." to the title and editing it would bring new updates to notice.

      The WIKI idea is good too.
