Incorrect work of default Magento site search was one of the things we didn’t like about our new website. Inadequate search results were frustrating. We had to give direct links to product pages to customers, because the needed modules were buried deep in the search results. To improve Magento search process and make sure our customers can easily find the products they are looking for, we’ve developed this advanced search extension. The module offers a rich list of advanced tools for better search in your Magento store.
People buy products only when they can find them
Before launching our Magento 1 search extension we tried it on our site. It didn’t take us long to notice two major positive changes: no more questions of the kind ‘where is the module?’ and more orders. We have about 100 products in our store, with larger catalogs the positive impact of the plugin should be a lot more significant. Don't surprise customers with poor search feature. Surprise them with precise Magento quick search results.
Choose the search type you prefer
Magento quick search module enables you to select the search type you prefer – ‘Like’, ‘Fulltext’ or ‘Combined’. Please feel free to choose the one which suits you best.
Set search priority for attributes
Our Magento advanced search tool does search among all product information to insure accurate search results. At the same time you can improve search process by setting search priority for attributes. For example, that first it should search in product name, then in product description and only after that in all other attributes.
Take advantage of the native Magento features
The advanced search plugin is completely integrated into Magento and supports its search features. For example, if you’ve specified synonyms for search terms in admin panel, the extension will respect them. The module feeds information into the ‘Last 5 Search Terms’ and ‘Top 5 Search Terms’, so there will be absolutely no negative effects of transition to Search Pro.

Customers can find products faster
While customers start to type something into the search box, the autocomplete Magento tool automatically starts searching and displaying products according to the entered information. So customers can find the right products much faster with the quick search option for Magento. The autocomplete Magento search results are shown in a popup window, which can be configured. Customers can click products in the window and get right to the product details pages.
Give particular attention to your store overall search experience, see the reasons for.
Include categories in search results
With the extension, display categories with breadcrumbs right in a search results' pop-up. Let your customers have a better view on your web store structure, so they can clearly see where are the products they are looking for.
Autocomplete window features
To improve search process, configure the following parameters for Magento autocomplete search window:
- Number of products displayed in the popup
- Minimal number of characters entered by customers after which the window pops up
- Autocomplete window width
- Product name and description length to be shown
- Display of reviews
- Display Add to Cart button
- new Specify size for pop-up thumbnail
- new Display wider horizontal pop-up
Optimizing internal search functionality means more relevant results, thus more conversions, discover why.
Manage the autocomplete window look
Due to a flexible autocomplete Magento search option it is possible to manage a number of design parameters for the popup window, such as border color, font color, text highlight color, and colors for products, which are hovered with mouse.

Yes, this is how our Search pro module works. For example, if an attribute name is "color of display" and its value is "red", the extension will search for both "display" and "red".
No, this module is suited to improve Magento search on the frontend only.
Usually, the site search extension is compatible with the majority of custom themes right out of the box and doesn't require any additional tweaking. But in case there are any issues, our support specialists will eliminate them for free.
No, the number of products in a store is not limited, which allows for better search in Magento. Our extension works properly for shops with small, medium or large inventory.
Yes, there is a search terms report where you can find all the data on searches users perform in your store.
Search synonyms are not considered by default. However, you can add synonyms for search terms in the admin panel. Read on to see the screenshot.
No, our module uses requests to the database and doesn’t utilize data of other 3rd party search engines including search SOLR.
Can this extension perform search by both attribute name and value?
Will this extension work for product backend search in the catalog?
Is Search Pro extension compatible with custom themes?

How does this module treat synonyms of a search term?

- 100% Open Source — Easy To Customize
- Follows Magento Code Architecture
- Separated HTML/CSS/JS
- Simple installation via Composer
The settings are easy to understand and configure. I like that there’s an ability to display product ratings in the autocomplete window. I can also set attributes order for search but there are only 10 fields available, it would be great to have an ability to add more, I need about 15.
Anyway, I’m happy with that extension and definitely recommend it.
Should admit this mod was a real catch – all we needed to do was just to customize its color theme and adjust a couple of settings. We also appreciate that amasty constantly releases module updates polishing its functionality. Therefore, having bought it once, you won’t have to install any other additional tools.
