Features in this release include:
With SearchStax UX Accelerators, you can deliver site search best practices on your site in a matter of hours.
You can see the Search UX Accelerators in action on the SearchStax website where we are using it to showcase the capabilities. Some of the best practices we implemented include search feedback, facets, color coded content types, type-ahead, spell check, synonyms, stopwords, promoted items, view by grid or list and sort by relevance or date.
You can now take advantage of Promotions to push content to the top of the results page to curate customized search results. We have also added Rules as another option to improve how results are displayed in the search experience.
To see promoted items on the SearchStax website, type “sitecore” into the search bar. The first three items in the search results have been promoted and are identified with a star in the upper right corner. These are the content items we think are most important and relevant to your search.
You can see the SearchStax icons that get installed with the Sitecore Module in the middle of the Control Panel
As part of the Search UX Accelerators, we have added a Search Feedback mechanism where users can leave quantitative and qualitative feedback on how they feel about your search experience. The results are aggregated in a NPS score and the comments are captured for review. Companies can use this feedback along with search analytics to drive improvements to the overall search experience.
Feel free to stop by the SearchStax website and test this feature for yourself by clicking on the Search Feedback link to the right of our search bar.
SearchStax Site Search breaks new ground by giving business teams the power to manage, analyze and enhance the site search experience on their websites while reducing IT bottlenecks and is designed to deliver quick value.
