How to Set Magento 2 Search Weight

Search Weight is the tool that supports sellers in allocating a weight for product attributes when they want these attributes to be preferred to appear in search results over other attributes.

For example, two attributes are Color and Brand. The Color with a search weight of 1 and the Brand with a search weight of 2. When the customers search the word “ white”, the result returned would be a list of products with a Color attribute value of “white” and the Brand includes the word “white” doesn’t appear in this result. That means the color attribute has a higher weight than the Brand attribute.
