Linden Lab announces new Second Life Marketplace Search


On Monday 15th August Linden Lab announced that the new Second Life Marketplace Search went live and the new search comes with a “learning algorithm that will further improve search results with time –  the more it’s used, the better it performs”.

In the new search “you can use boolean operators in search (AND, OR, NOT) for more specific searches”. The new system should now be faster and more robust than ever before when searching for stuff.
