Phrases in Recommended Links and Synonyms
Hi, I've just spent the better part of two weeks configuring and testing a site using Zoom, and continue to be impressed with its functions and performance. By the way, I think you should raise the price--it's worth more than $299.
A recurring problem I have involves phrases, both in recommended links and synonyms. In building recommended links for single-word or hyphenated terms, the search produces great results, even when users enter crazy searches such as <i>things to know about facebook</i>. I have a recommended link for facebook* and face-book*. However, when they enter the same search with Face book spelled as two words, they get no recommended links, and since I can't create a multi-word synonym, they will probably get no hits at all. It appears that wildcards only work in recommended links for single-word terms, or am I missing something?
On our site, this is a widespread problem, which greatly diminishes the usefulness of Zoom.

I have a few other issues and suggestions I'd like to share, but I'll put them in separate posts to keep the thread focused.
