Overview Advanced Sphinx Search Pro

Product search connects your products to the shoppers searching for them, helping you drive sales to your store. On average, 20% of visitors use the search. These are the visitors who know what they want and are looking for it to buy. These visitors make a half of your revenue. That is why the quality and speed of product search significantly affects the sales. All these tasks are performed by Magento Advanced Search extension.

Advanced Sphinx Search Pro can significantly improve the speed and quality of search results. This Magento search module replaces the standard search of Magento by search of enterprise level provided by Sphinx.

How does it work?

Sphinx search engine indexes the database products of Magento store and gathers the necessary information for searching to a special data storage. When a user makes a search in the online store, our Magento Advanced Search module refers with the search query to the Sphinx to obtain search results and displays them to a user. Everything happens very quickly.

Simply the best !
By Adrian on September 25, 2014

I noticed lately the fact that people are so lazy to navigate for products and they prefer to input what they search for in the search bar.
And more than this, clients are not patient, even if they do mistakes while typing they get anxious and quit the shop.
This extension solves great the above mentioned problems, being so powerfull and having also grammar and sintax correction posibilities.
Congratulations !

Highly recommended
By Taras on March 25, 2014

The reason we bought this module was Magento standard search results were irrelevant. Besides re-indexing was taking too much time and sometimes our MySQL server was brought to its knees. With Sphinx search we have perfect search results and no pain. And it is easy to configure too.

Excellent package
By Marko on December 16, 2013      Verified Purchase

We used to have Google Site Search in our webshop (www.toimistotuote.fi) and had some unsolvable problems with that.We started to use Sphinx Search Pro a month ago and it works like a dream! We have witnessed a remarkable improvement in search result relevance which has already raised our conversions. This extension is a must have product, if you need a smooth and affordable search function in your webshop.

Greatly improves the search function.
By Garrettperna on March 14, 2013

So far so good!! Greatly improves the search function. I completely agree with btd777. The consideration of categories is a must. If that were to be implemented, I would have nothing but good things to say. Thanks!

Brilliant
By Paul on March 1, 2013      Verified Purchase

This extension is fantastic. It gives much better results and is very quick! Also the guys at Mirasvit are always happy to help and even guided us through a problem where results were not showing up. This turned out to be a setting in the admin and nothing to do with the extension but Alexander was still happy to help. Thanks a lot!

Amazing results
By Brent on December 13, 2012

We recently purchased this extension and are happy with the results. The only improvement that we suggested was that it integrated the category names as keywords for product results. They said that this feature will be in the next version. We will really be happy once that it finished. The support team for the extension has been really helpful in helping us configure the extension to meet our needs!
