Bol.com search not accurate

Postby jotie » Sat Jun 22, 2019 5:32 am

Hi Conor,
When I perform a search on an ISBN that is in the database of Bol.com NL, Bookpedia seems to display the wrong book. Try e.g. with 9789044640700. Any thoughts about that issue?

9789044640700 = Rivieren keren nooit terug

Is this the wrong book or the correct book. You did not provide the correct title, or any title, for that ISBN.

Can you provide some example ISBN Numbers with the correct Titles please.

OK, maybe my first message was too short to be clear. Let's give me some examples:

- 9789044640700 => correct title: "Het tij keren"; search via Bookpedia: "Rivieren keren nooit terug"
- 9789029505437 => correct title: "Rivieren keren nooit terug"; search via Bookpedia: "Het tij keren"
- 9789029573603 => correct title: 'Stil de tijd"; search via Bookpedia: "Kairos"
- 9789029505017 => correct title: "Kairos"; search via Bookpedia: "Stil de tijd"

What seems to happen is that Bookpedia does not display the title associated with the ISBN, but the first 'recommended' title (listed on the bol.com website under the header 'Anderen bekeken ook').
