Just changed the search feature here on AppGlobe. Used to have WordPress standard search, but I thought why not use the best search engine ever written?
A good search engine for a website is a must. There’s noting more frustrating than trying to search for something that obviously should be there, and get no results back. I usually leave a website pretty quickly when that happends, or – if its important to find what I’m looking for – use Google to search the website. (query site:website-with-search-that-suck.com)
I’m not saying WordPress search sucks. Most websites with frustrating search I’ve come across haven’t been WordPress sites. Also, I know there are many plugins that can be used to make WordPress search more flexible and accurate, but still, none of them beats Google Custom Search.
Could you write an article on how you implemented the search here at appglobe?
Did the same on my blog awhile back, and changed the gcs settings to use autocomplete as well.
Yup, true. Always use custom search on my blogs.
Hmm… I should use google search too… I felt that wp search results are not well sorted… its really frustrating…
