KAIMBO – Semantic Search for WordPress (Beta stage)
Transinsight is developing the next generation of search technology. Now through our WordPress plugin KAIMBO, the search boxes capabilities are enhanched to its full potential.
Please watch our short Video Presentation.
KAIMBO is a Plug-In for WordPress and provides semantic search. It goes far beyond keyword search and gives you the freedom to use your own personal background knowledge to improve search experience for the visitors of your site. They than can find what they did not without KAIMBO! Give it a try.
There are 4 editions available. The main limitation in the free version is that it will only index 50 pages (in the beta stage still more). You can compare the editions at the http://kaimbo.com/editions page.
Note: The plugin is still in a beta stage. We tested it thoroughly on several wordpress instances. Nevertheless it might happen to not be fully compatible with your environment. We appreciate your feedback very much, and we are prepared to fix the eventually appearing issues fast. You can check the known issues in the FAQ.
Note: The KAIMBO search results will be displayed only when the indexing of the website is finished. Until that the default wordpress search results are shown. This will take around 3 minutes for 100 pages. The admin user is informed about the progress.
Important note 1: The plugin works only on webpages hosted on a domain name accessible from the internet. Localhost, 127.0.0.1, password protected pages will not work, because the search server can not find these to index them, therefore it can not return search results. Only the online-editing feature will work.
Important note 2: The website must allow access to the crawler "Kaimbo 1.0" in the robots.txt. (or allow crawling generally)
The features summarized:
Highlighting: The searched keywords and concepts are highlighted in the results.
Instant re-crawling: If you change the knowledge base or the content of your web site KAIMBO updates the index automatically. If for example a synonym for a product was given it is instantaneously used for the next searches.
PDF-Indexing: PDF documents like product catalogs are also semantically indexed and found if searched concepts appear in them. This is possible because KAIMBO searches in it's own semantic index rather than in the WordPress database.
Advanced keyword search: KAIMBO uses an elaborate algorithm for keyword based search. If your customers do not know the exact spelling of your products, KAIMBO helps to bridge the gap.
Semantic search: KAIMBO goes beyond keywords and adds meaning to your search. You can bridge the gap between the vocabulary of your users or customers and your world. Synonyms and related concepts will be found, ensuring that the users will never miss the page, product or info they are looking for.
Smart Auto-Completion: In the search-box KAIMBO shows you not only the completed search term but also the related terms used for query expansion.
Concept highlighting: KAIMBO highlights the concepts from the knowledge base so that you can see at a glance what concepts are connected to meanings.
Knowledge-base editor: for large installations and huge knowledge-bases this tool allows for tailoring the background knowledge.
List of top searches: KAIMBO provides a table where you see the most common searches on your site. An unique feature to tailor your content to your visitors or customers.
Zero results list: this unique feature shows you the most important searches on your site; the ones that did not lead to any results. There you can find what customers were looking for but your site did not give any results.
List of last searches: You can see the list of latest searches by date. Using this table you can get a view about how often the readers search, what currently interests them.
One click installation: Just download and activate the plug-in and all is done. No registration is required! KAIMBO then creates automatically a semantic index over your web site e.g. your blog. The search box now acts intelligently.
Easy login: Login directly “to your web site”. This unique feature allows to edit KAIMBO's knowledge “in place”. See the movie for more details.
In place editing: unparalleled speed-up in changing, extending and correcting your site by in place editing.
When we are showing the list of searches, in the details we present the ip and user agent of the user who executed the seach. This means, we store this data on our servers, and in this case privacy implications have to be considered. From our side, the single purpose to store this, is to present it in the search result lists, and we are not showing the data to any third party. If this is still not save enough for you, please contact us, and we may prepare a plugin version which is not storing and showing the ip data with the searches.
We have put effort to avoid conflicts or incompatibility with other plugins. If you still find a problem, please report it (firstname.lastname@example.org)
This plugin requires PHP5.
The plugin works with the current latest Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Opera and Internet Explorer. It is possible to use it with Internet explorer 8, but for all design features use Internet Explorer 9 or higher.
