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 bar. These are the visitors who know what they want and are looking to buy. These visitors make up 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 Magento's standard search with the search of an enterprise level provided by Sphinx.

How does it work?

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

Main Features

  • Google-like search syntax
  • Product attributes weighting
  • Supports morphological word form dictionaries (like Solr or Lucene search engine)

  • Built-in dictionary of synonyms (60730 words)
  • Built-in dictionary of stopwords (665 words)
  • Search products by tags
  • Search products by category names
  • Search products by associated products attributes (skus, name, model etc)
  • "Long tail" search strategy
  • Search Landing Pages
  • Search by multiple content types:

    • Catalog Products
    • Catalog Categories
    • Catalog Attribute
    • CMS Pages
    • Blog (AW Blog, Wordpress)
    • VBulletin Forum
    • AW Knowledge Base
    • Search Terms
    • Articles, News etc
  • High Indexing speed
  • High Searching speed of over 500 queries/sec against 1,000,000 skus

    Adrian from United States
    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 !

    Taras from United States
    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.

    Brent from United States
    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!
