New Hubspot Site Search functionalitySOLVE
May 14, 2018 4:34 PM
Greetings all. For those that may not have seen it yet, HS Has a new Site Search function.
My 2cents thus far.
It only displays/returns 3 options for any search.. I find this extremely limiting and narrow. What if what I'm looking for isn't in those 3???? Remember variety is the spice of life.
Next, how does HS decide that those are the 3 best? Most viewed? Most clicks? Lowest bounce rate? Least number of spelling errors? What???????
What is being indexed? From what I've discovered so far, it is not your full site, but seems to be limited to only the H1and H2, and maybe H3 tags. So, if your word ( or your customers ) aren't H1-3, they are out of luck.
I'd really like to see this module really developed and made truly useful. As it stands now, it's not even useful for our in-house people to use.

Hi @KeyWestScott Thanks for the great feedback! Let me address some of your concerns.
It only displays/returns 3 options for any search.
The pre-search preview only shows three results a time - search itself will return anything that matches the results.
Next, how does HS decide that those are the 3 best?
The algorhythm is based on page view (see doc linked below).
What is being indexed?
Right now we only index Web Pages and Blog Posts. User testing showed that most people didn't want their LPs indexed. However, in the hands of a developer, this could be changed (developer docs here). We also do full text matching, so regardless of whether the keyword is in the title, meta description, or body, we'll find it and index it.
Please let me know if you have further questions.
