Site Search Introduction

With Site Search, you no longer need to be a major search engine to provide a fantastic and valuable search experience. People love to search. Whether we are looking for tasty restaurants, a new pair of shoes or how to solve a problem, nothing beats typing a simple sentence into a box and seeing the right results appear. Well-crafted search can help your visitors find what they are seeking, leading to deeper engagement, more bountiful conversions and profound insights into their exploration habits.

If you have not done so already, create an account and select Site Search. Next, enter your website address. This will dispatch the Swiftype Crawler. The crawler will navigate and map your pages, similar to any major search engine. As the crawler explores your pages it creates an index for your data. This index becomes your source of data. Your users' will search against this data will you manage everything from your Dashboard.

After the index is built you can use the Swiftype Result Designer to determine how your results will appear and how and where you would like to position your search box. The designer has all the tools you need to create a slick, manageable and intuitive search experience.

The last step is to install a snippet within your web pages. At its easiest, you place one script tag within your website code to have a search-box appear at the bottom right of all of your pages. For more complex configurations, you can dig deep into the designer or work at the level of your website code using the Site Search API.

Once Site Search is installed, you can apply powerful and useful features such as autocomplete, results tuning, drag-and-drop ranking adjustments, weighting, synonyms, view analytics, and much more.

If API-centric, robust, developer-friendly application search is what you are looking for, checkout App Search prior to diving into Site Search.
