A catalog suggestion generator creates suggestions based on query pattens. A query pattern is a combination of product attributes, such as: Brand+ProductType or Style+Brand+ProductType.
The most popular query patterns can be easily mined from search logs. A catalog suggestion generator uses natural relevancy and boosting by selected business signals to establish a base suggestion ranking.
The catalog suggestion generator reveals the full depth and breadth of the catalog, such as new brands and product types. It also provides a straightforward cold start, and is suitable for a low traffic site.
Additionally, it gives the best results for sites with a catalog with a rich and relatively clean attribution. The curation of suggestion patterns, and automated validation of resulting suggestions, ensures high suggestion quality.
