Thursday, Reddit Announced It makes a significant difference in the search operations on its website. Comments can be fully searched for the first time, and other improvements have been made to ensure robust, comprehensive and effective search results.
Reddit claims that this is the first time in 16 years of site history that users have searched for everything from posts to communities to comments. Users can search for comments within specific subdivisions, which allows Reddit to do more targeted searches than just a single word search.
To access the feedback search, type the query into the search bar at the top of the website and then click the “Comments” tab at the top of the results page. Also, the search results page has a new look on both desktop and mobile.
Previously, users had to take alternative approaches such as going to Google with a site: reddit.com to search for ideas. According to a poll conducted by Reddit, this is one of the most sought after features by users.
Searches are less restricted with appropriate results, such as allowing different spellings of a word to show more in your search. And Reddit claims to have improved the search engine’s ability to guess user intent.
Note that Reddit has changed the criteria for ranking search results on your results pages. The amount of contacts a post receives plays an important role in how high it appears in your results, which means you will find the most popular posts above.
These changes seem to be part of an overall effort to make it easier to find content outside of the subtitles you already follow; Reddit was introduced New invention tab In its mobile app earlier this year.
