The built-in search parameter in Magento does not always match the expectations of business owners. If visitors cannot find what they are looking for, it will result in the loss of customers. In this case, we can consider the best option to boost your sales by installing the external search engine.
To use an external search engine, just make a choice among several extensions that you can find in the Marketplace.
We specifically have 3 of the most popular solutions:
ElasticSearch uses an external instance to improve your search function and user experience.
Here, we can find all needed search functions: search for autocomplete, several types of content and much more.
Sphinx Search is an open source search engine that improves the search function in Magento. Sphinx works very quickly and provides you with relevant search results. Using this solution, you can find everything you need to create the best product search in your online store.
SOLR Definitely installation of Apache Solr for your Magento Store will give you a number of advantages in comparison to the out of the box search based on MySQL:
because the Apache Solr installation will require the change in the server configuration, we advise you to get help from an experienced developer. Before beginning the installation, make sure that you have made a backup of your website and make sure you know how to restore your store!
Feel free to get in touch with us and our developers will help to find the best solution for you!
