Eye on the Blog: Linden Lab Announces New Marketplace Search is Active
On Monday August 15, Linden Lab announced that their new Marketplace Search was up and running. The Lab stated that included in the new search was a "learning algorithm" that over time will gradually improve over time as residents use it.
Today we’re happy to announce that the new Marketplace search is live! In addition to helping you find what you are looking for faster, we’re excited to swap out the ageing infrastructure that was supporting the old search. Part of the new search is a learning algorithm that will further improve search results with time - the more it’s used, the better it performs. Also, keep in mind that you can use boolean operators in search (AND, OR, NOT) for more specific searches. We look forward to a more relevant and robust experience for shoppers and merchants alike.
The Lab had included Marketplace as among the things they were improving in their recent list of improvements and developments.
Users are asked to report any bugs found in the Jira.
