Customizing Results & Ranking

Manually ordering results for search queries doesn't scale well.

A lot of search software encourages you to manually order results for specific search queries. We don’t believe a business of any reasonable digital scale should have to set the order of search results for any query. Here's why.

  • You’ve got thousands of customers with different needs, all making different searches, and you can’t possibly know what they’re all looking for.
  • A search for "jaguar" could mean a car, a big cat, a football team or an operating system. Often there is no perfect result that will work for everyone.

We allow you to set broad rules to help define content importance while allowing machine learning to hone in on the optimal result ordering for all your customers.

Excluding Results

You can also choose to exclude certain records or types of record from results entirely if you don't want users to find them. Want to exclude all PDFs from your search result? Even an entire site section or subdomain? No problem.
