WooCommerce – How to Find Products with Very Long or Short Descriptions

Your buyers don’t want to read so many explanations about your products. They want you to tell them the main features in one or two lines, if possible. Therefore, it is often a mistake to set too long descriptions for your products.

Now, if you’ve already made the mistake of describing your products with too many characters, we don’t want you to worry.  It is true that without any help it is virtually impossible to find thousands of products with too long titles. But we want to show you a way to find them in a few minutes.

You simply need to follow these easy steps.

1- Install the WooCommerce Products Spreadsheet plugin

This plugin displays all your products in a spreadsheet. You can apply changes on hundreds of products at once using the Bulk Edit tool, or you can make advanced searches using the Search option.

Once you install and activate the plugin, go to Sheet Editor > Edit Products and you’ll see all your products on the spreadsheet.

2- Open the plugin’s “Search” tool

To filter the products by description or content length, the first step you need to take is open the Search tool. It’s located on the plugin’s toolbar. Just click on it.

3- Filter your products by description or content length

Now you need to tick the Enable advanced filters checkbox and use these values to filter your products.

a) Filter them by description length

  • Field key: Short description
  • Operator: CHARACTER LENGTH >
  • Value: 200, for example

b) Filter them by content length

  • Field key: Content
  • Operator: CHARACTER LENGTH >
  • Value: 200, for example

Finally, click on Run search in order to filter your products, which will be shown on the spreadsheet.

4- Edit them quickly on the spreadsheet

Now you need to edit the long descriptions or contents on the spreadsheet. When you’re done, click on Save to apply the changes.

Done!

As you can see, it’s really simple to find your products with too long descriptions and edit them on the spreadsheet.
