I'm trying to catalogSearch products by category but it's giving me inaccurate results like products that are not in the category, i have set to "No" searchable description ,reindex catalog search index and search type to "Fulltext""

Is there any other options of search catalog in magento ?

  • How's the search query string looks like?

  • Let's say in category books : " the black book", it returns all the books containing one of those not the exact book.

Make sure that product name is used in search and try to switch to Combine Search, a reindex (may be a full one) is necessary after such change. Here you can find an explanation on how the magento search works.
