I want to change woocommerce search. And want to limit the search to Product title and Category and Tag only excluding description and short description.

Search Form is in plugins/woocommerce/woocommerce-template.php file, Named get_product_search_form(). but how to apply filter at search of this form.

There are no specific searches for WooCommerce. It utilizes WordPress default search system. By default WordPress does not search within tags ( not sure if that has changed for WP 3.6 ). It searches only in titles and description. This is the same if it is for a product.
