Every so often I find a plugin that completely revolutionizes certain sites. One of my recent finds was a custom search plugin for WordPress, known as Swiftype.
Swiftype actually creates a custom search engine for your site. When you set it up, you give the tool some time to index all your posts. After that, it automatically indexes every post you write. When readers use your search bar they start typing and Swiftype starts suggesting posts!
What’s even cooler is you can login at Swiftype, type in a search querey and rearrange the results. This way if you know your apple pie recipe should be the first thing to pop up when someone types the word apple, you can make that happen.
I especially love this plugin for craft and recipe sites and have been using it on MomPrepares.com for some time. I use it myself when I need to find an older post and everyone I know is impressed with it.
Swiftype is very fast and the plugin for WordPress is so easy to set up. It is free for single sites and provides analytics for your searches! They also have paid versions to use on multiple sites and these come with more options, better stats and support.
Check out Swiftype.
