Synonyms Tab

Site Search > Relevance > Basic Relevance > Synonyms Tab

The Synonyms Tab of Site Search’s Basic Relevance screen lets the Business User edit the list of keyword synonyms. You can upload a synonym list using the Browse button. Note that an uploaded list wipes out any previous synonyms.  

Some synonyms are one-way (this word implies that synonym), while others are symmetrical (each word implies the other). For example, when the user types in “William,” also search for “Bill” at the same time. (But when they type in “Bill”, don’t search for “William”. It might be a phone bill.)

When the user types in either “lose” or “loose”, search for both. 

When they type “Tom”, search for multiple alternatives.

The (+) button on the right adds the synonym to the list of synonyms. 

Highlight an item in the list and click the trash can button to delete it. Use the cloud icon on the right to download the list of synonyms.
