I am using magento 2.1.8 Enterprise edition. I do not want to save search terms which have zero search results. Is there any solution ?

There is no option in configuration to stop saving the search terms with 0 search results. Please help.

  • Anyone else have solution for this? I used the below module , it is not saving search terms with 0 search results but it increments the uses in admin by 2 . we are also using mirasvit catalog search extension. After disabling the module, the default functionality increments the uses by 1 only.

Try this.

Create a custom module and create following files.

File: etc/di.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
    <type name="Magento\Search\Model\Query">
        <plugin name="save_greater_then_zero_search_results" type="[Vendor]\[Module]\Plugin\Query" />

File: Plugin/Query.php


namespace [Vendor]\[Module]\Plugin;

class Query
    public function aroundSaveIncrementalPopularity($subject, $callable)
        return $subject;

    public function aroundSaveNumResults($subject, $callable, $numResults)
        if($numResults > 0)

        return $subject;

Replace [Vendor] and [Module] with your actual vendor and module name. Hope this helps.

  • Thankyou. It works.

  • The line $subject->getResource()->saveIncrementalPopularity($subject); is saving the uses with an increment of 2. whereas It should save with One incremented value.
