Pin and Hide Products, Collections and Pages

Before we go into how you can Pin or Hide products, collections, and pages on your store, let’s go over what these functions do.

Sparq Search allows you to have control over your search results by pinning products to the top or hiding some products from search results.

Pin Items

A pinned item will always come on top of the search results for relevant search queries. Eg. if you pin a product with title “Red Shirt”, then if somebody searches for “red shirt”, “red” or “shirt” and if the product is part of the search results, it will be bubbled to top among its peers.

You can pin multiple items for a given query. For now, you cannot define how pinned items are ranked among each other.

To pin a product, collection or page, simply head over to the Data tab on the Sparq Search panel. You can search for the required item by searching at the input box at the top. For the required item, on the right-most column, you will see the “Actions” along with two symbols. Clicking on the “Star” icon will Pin it to the top.

To unpin an item, click on the Star icon again and the item will no longer be prioritized.

Hide Items

If you hide an item then that product will simply not show up in the search results. To hide multiple products at the same time, you can check out our Hide Tags section.

To hide a product, collection or page, simply head over to the Data tab on the Sparq Search panel. You can search for the required item by searching at the input box at the top. For the required item, on the right-most column, you will see the “Actions” along with two symbols. Clicking on the “Stop” icon will hide the item from search results.

You can always revert changes by clicking the stop button again.
