Why doesn't my Shopify collection or product show up while searching?

Sometimes the search term for Shopify collections or products is too general, so a search returns many matching products or collections. It can then be hard to find the one you need. Other times the collection or product name is not specific enough or for whatever reason does not return the right results.

In these cases, a workaround is to search by the ID of the collection or product. If you are unsure of the id, you can find that in the Shopify admin or visit the product or collection url and adding .json on the end. For example: https://mystore.com/collections/my-collection.json
