Refine by colour and price on Empora

New YorkLast week we launched a new feature on Empora, the ability to refine a search by various factors. You can now search through our retailers’ products by colour and price, as well as what came before.

This brings Empora much more closely into line with what people expect from a modern shopping site; the ability for users to define and refine the parameters of their search.

Faceted search, or faceted navigation like this is really now the established standard for enterprise search, and seems to keep threatening to break into the mainstream search market in the guise of clustered or “semantic” search engines. Even Google is starting to tread into the mainstream faceting, as you can see from this search for cheese reviews in the past 24 hours.

Faceted search seems like it’s here to stay.
