WordPress + HubSpot Search Functionality

SOLVE

I'm using HubSpot for my blog and my customer's blogs as a subdomain. We use Wordpress as our CMS system. In the search functionality of Wordpress, when you search for something on the site, it's not indexing the subdomain (blog).

 

For example: If I attempt to search on either www.website.com or blog.website.com it resolves to https://www.website.com/?s=searchterm, meaning it doesn’t index the blog sub domain's contents. 

 

Has anyone resolved this on their own site for WordPress CMS?

Hi @stacicretu

 

To the best of my knowledge, the native Wordpress search function is constrianed to the content in the wordpress install and can not be congfigured to look at other domains/subdomains. 

 

To get a unified search function that takes in both wordpress and hubspot domains, I think you will need to look at third party solutions like Site Search 360 or Swiftype.

 

Hope this helps.

Phil,

  

We've built a plugin for WordPress that extends WP search into HubSpot content, included is also a widget that pulls any number of recent posts from HubSpot. No need for management of HTML snippets from HubSpot

 

This could be another solution as it does not store any HS data in WP, all HS post content is inserted into WP search on the fly.

 

In addition to searching & blogs, we've added forms, ctas, links, and files.

 

Have a look, maybe this will help future issues with WordPress/HubSpot management

Would love to hear your feedback.

Hi @frankgeraci

 

This plugin seems to be exactly what I was searching for. Thank you. Do you know and/or have any solution for the other way around - indexing the Wordpress pages and content into the Hubspot search results?

 

Best,

Karina Sonaglio

As the replies before me have mentioned, Wordpress native search is not all that great and it is not worth it to try and improve it.

 

As a solution, I would recommend using ExpertRec. It is a crawler-based solution that is easy to integrate into your website and comes with a lot of customization options without any coding. The price starts at $9, so I feel that it offers the best bang for the buck. 

 

You can also go for a plugin solution using this: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-fastest-site-search/
