Smart Search replaces the native WordPress search engine by giving relevance to what matters. Results are displayed according to your current theme.
Bring a REAL search engine into your WordPress website in 5 minutes, for free!
Smart Search enhances the WordPress search engine by querying Microsoft BING and its Search API. The search query is performed in the context of your website url, just like you would type the following search query on BING:
site:http://www.yourblog.com find this and that in New York
URLs from the BING result set are converted by Smart Search to WordPress post IDs, thus the display process is the same your theme implements for regular searches. Search results come from Microsoft BING. This means semantics and relevance on board!!
You can also choose to cache the search engine's results for a defined period of time, which basically means that your site will load a little bit faster if the same search query is used.
Easy, simple and fast! If this is your way and fits your needs, you could consider Smart Search Pro and its extended features.
Note: your blog content must be indexed by BING in order to see the matching result set. Go here to submit yuor site to BING. Feel free to leave a review here. To get in touch with me you can drop me an email.
