I’ve just switched the search feature of this website to Algolia and the improvements are staggering! Feel free to give the search feature of this website a test and you’ll see that results are now instant and more accurate than ever.
Algolia is the search-as-a-service platform that enables companies of all sizes to deliver fast and relevant digital experiences that drive real results.algolia.com
Algolia has a Free plan which allows you to have up to 10,000 search requests a month so you too can turbocharge the search feature of your website to give your users a good search experience.
Today I’ll be writing a guide on how you can do this for your WordPress powered website.
A Quick Note:
Algolia used to have an official WordPress plugin but it has been discontinued as of May 2, 2019.
Thanks to the power of open source, a developer called WebDevStudios stepped in, forked the plugin and they’ve committed to continue maintaining and developing the plugin called WP Search with Algolia.
