Search Results Relevance

As you can see from the screenshot, the user can choose whether it was a category that he was searching for or the product. Each online store has tons of information and proper navigation through it is a must nowadays.

Misspelling correction

Typos are common thing but it damages search results severely in case you don?t have any software to correct it. Sphinx Search Ultimate has several built-in features that help the customer to find the product he wants to buy even if the customer is unsure how to type it correctly.

Sphinx Search Ultimate - misspeling correctionThe extension uses Sphinx Search Engine ? an open source search engine that significantly improves the relevance (quality) and the speed of search. The perk we would like to outline about this extension is the instant drop down of search results.

Ron kindly agreed to write a couple of words about extension:

Right from the start it has shown a tremendous improvement to our previous (standard Magento) search functionality. The standard search functionality, as probably widely known, does not really function that well. We had several issues concerning this. Now I believe these issues have been resolved with this new Sphinx Search Ultimate extension of Mirasvit. Right from the start the improvements are easily noticeable. The right results actually show up for once in clean order (by own preference editable). Since we just installed this extension for now I can say that most basic functions can be edited by changing settings in the back-end of Magento to our wishes. A few design adjustments still have to be made through editing template files but for now it all seems to be working out well.
