How Searchanise works for Wix


Searchanise introduces the Instant Search Widget and the improved Search Results Widget for Wix stores.

After installation of the Searchanise widgets, you will find the Searchanise search bar in the Wix website editor. There, you can change the position and colors of the Searchanise search bar for both desktop and mobile versions of your store. 

Once the app is installed in a store, it automatically registers a Searchanise account, and starts indexing and importing the store’s data that will be used for search, sorting, and filters. The imported data includes:

  • Products
  • Collections

    The app can use collections only for creating filters. It’s not possible to find collections through search, the customers will see only the products they contain

  • Pages and blog posts
  • Orders for the Bestselling sorting

You can check the progress of the indexation in the Dashboard section of the Searchanise control panel.

The Searchanise control panel itself can be opened in the Wix admin panel > Apps > Searchanise, or via the Wix website editor:

  1. Select the Searchanise search bar.
  2. Click the Settings button.
  3. Select the Main tab.
  4. Click the Manage App button to open a new tab with the Searchanise control panel.

Further indexation of changes in products, collections, and blog posts occurs automatically in real time. The indexation of pages occurs automatically every 15 minutes.

You can start the re-indexation manually. To do this, click the Force re-indexation button in the Dashboard section of the Searchanise control panel.

The app searches through products, categories, blog posts, and pages. This is the list of product fields used for the search:

  • Name
  • Description
  • SKU
  • Options for all product variants
  • Additional info sections
  • Collections

Searchanise indexes all products, including the ones that are not shown in your online store.

The Searchaniseapp gathers and introduces the data related to the activities and behavior of your customers: popular search queries and terms, top-performing products, queries that bring zero results, and many more. This data will help you improve the user experience in your store by optimizing search or introducing new products.
