Improve search experience of your customers to attract more revenue
How does indexing via Elastic Search work in Magento 2To ensure logical storing of scattered data and its faster processing, our Elastic Search uses indexes. They come with long-term persistence thanks to the native ‘gateway’ feature of the Elasticsearch engine. Thus, you achieve fast page loading and the option to recover all the indexes exactly from the gateway in case of a server technical problems or even crash.
Product Attribute Weight
Your customers will get more precise results, when you specify search weight for product attributes. This will be implemented in the search algorithm.
Full Text Content Search
Let your customers search through all the content of your web store. Magento 2 Elastic Search module returns the full text results within CMS pages and blocks.
With the fallback feature, return alternative variants, when there are 0 found items. Offer your customers other similar products automatically.
Asian languages support
The extension includes custom analyzers for Japanese, Chinese and Korean languages to provide optimal shopping experience on a global level. See more details here.
Strengthen the quality of search results and increase your add-to-cart rate
Exclude stop words from the search results
Keep index small and maintain high search speed by specifying the list of words to be ignored by the search engine. Manage the stop words from the backend anytime on a grid.
Manage tasks via Cron Tasks List
Thanks to the pre-integrated Cron Tasks List the extension allows you to manage and track all cron tasks running on the website background. Delete separate tasks in bulk, apply filtering and sorting options if needed.
Apart from the custom analyzers for Asian languages, the extension can use inbox stopwords and supports inbox stemming from the rich list of languages, including Arabic, Hindi, Greek and many more.
One-result redirect to product page
This feature helps to significantly decrease the number of steps a customer makes between searching and making a purchase. You can also enable redirection from 404 pages to enhance the UX.
Keep important technical nuances under control
Redirect to the search results from broken URLs
Decrease customer churn caused by chaotic user flow. Exclude broken URLs leading to the 404 page from your customers’ path by setting up automatic redirection to search results.
Specify SEO URL key for the default search results
Set up SEO-friendly short URLs for the default search results to simplify user experience. For example, an URL will look 'search/yellow' instead of 'catalogsearch/results/q=yellow'.
Broaden the original functionality with compatibility opportunities
- Improved Layered Navigation helps to build user-friendly navigation to improve customer shopping experience.
- Product Parts Finder provides advanced searching options (e.g. year-make-model and other product filters) for the customers searching for auto repair parts.
