Ranking rules for product listing pages

This is for:

Merchandiser

In the Coveo Merchandising Hub (CMH), merchandisers can define ranking rules to influence the order in which products are displayed on Product listing page (PLP). Ranking rules are used to boost or bury specific products based on specific conditions. They can also be used to pin products at a specific position on a PLP. For example, a merchandiser can create a ranking rule too boost the ranking of products that are on sale, or bury products that are out of stock.

Ranking rules can apply to all PLPs or to a specific PLP.
