There is a band new feature that will be rolled out during the server update process. Now you will be able to set multiple categoryids and it will try to find a product in each category until it does (and then it jumps to the default keywords like normal).

Since most publishers are in the technology field, this will allow you to use categoryid 4 (computer stuff) and categoryid 11000000 (Electronics) to really get all the products under the technology banner.

There will be a further update later this year to provide enhanced searching by multiple category, but this is the interim step before that happens.

This is currently running on Server2 only and the generators will not be updated until the new server roll out is complete. If you wish to try this out, please let me know.
