WordPress search is one of those things people love to hate.
It gets the job done just fine but many times authors are looking for something more relevant than simple title and content fulltext matching ordered by date.
SearchWP aims to be the best WordPress search plugin you can find. It allows you to apply weights to keyword search hits based on where the keyword was found. Titles can have more weight than comments, content more weight than excerpts. Further, you can set these weights *per custom post type* instead of having the same weights for all post types.
Beyond that you can set separate keyword weights per taxonomy and per custom field. Users of plugins like Advanced Custom Fields, Custom Field Suite, Pods, or any other plugin that allows you to easily customize the edit screens of your post and stores data in custom fields will love SearchWP.
The feature list goes on, including keyword stemming, PDF indexing, supplemental search engines for use outside the main site search, and more!
I’m betting that all WordPress users are interested in a better WordPress search solution for their blogs or websites.
I know I’m all ears whenever the topic of on-site search comes up, and I was very happy when I came to know that Jonathan Christopher (one of the most respected WP developers) was working on this plugin. I’m double happy therefore to announce today’s giveaway, which will see Jonathan giving out 5 single site copies of the SearchWP plugin to our lucky readers.
All you need to do is participate via the Rafflecopter widget below as usual, and we’ll announce the winners next week. Good luck!
