Search Display Preference for your DistributorCentral Account and Website.
Depending on what keywords you are searching for, this can bring back many results. For example, using the keyword “bag” will bring back results for any products with the word “bag” in the product description, which can show results that may not be relevant to what you are looking for.
We now have a new search display preference that you can enable in your account to search only by the product name and number by default, as opposed to searching for the description as well. This can help initially narrow down search results.
To set this preference for your DistributorCentral account and website, follow these steps:
1. Go to the Account Menu
2. Select Preferences from the drop-down list
3. Select Account Preferences to change the setting
within your account / Select Website Preferences
to change the setting for your website
6. Click on Save
Note: You will have to publish your website if you have changed this setting for your website preferences.
A Special Note To Suppliers:
Be diligent in naming and describing your products in DistributorCentral. Use this product search optimization website to see exactly how your products show up to Distributors in DistributorCentral searches.
Also, please make sure that you only include your products in the Categories and Industry Catalogs that they relate to. This helps Distributors and their customers get accurate and reliable searches everytime.
