Sphinx Search Ultimate - Quick Start

Sphinx Search Ultimate is the most powerful our extension, that combines all the best we had made to enhance search capabilities of Standard Magento.

It combines four powerful modules, each of which allows you large set of options:

  • Core Search Module - contains all necessary to enhance search and display of its results.
  • Search Sphinx - contains easy and rich interface for Search Sphinx engine.
  • Search Autocomplete - allows you to enhance your search by adding suggestions at the customer fingertips.
  • Search Spell Correction - allows you to correct on-the-fly customer misspells, and ensure, that virtually any request will be satisfied.

Here is how you can tune up our extension for maximum effectiveness.

  1. Tune-up Core Search Settings. Start with creating Indices and configuring Search Results.

    Tip

    After you had created Indices, it's better to quickly reindex all data. The best way to do it - via console/SSH:

        php -f bin/magento indexer:reindex catalogsearch_fulltext

  2. Add to your store Stopwords and Synonyms, to enhance search. You can even import them using command-line interface.

  3. Create a set of Landing Pages to create convenient hubs for your most important products.

  4. Enhance your search by creating rules for 'long-tail search' and ordering products at search results.

  5. Consider, which search engine you're about to use. If you choose Search Sphinx, then you will need to install it first, and then connect to your store.

  6. Configure Autocomplete to provide your customers with useful suggestions and searching tips.

  7. Enable misspell correction to provide customers with results even when they make mistakes.

  8. Analyze your searches with our Reports and build flexible search policy to boost your store capabilities to the top.
