Extended Search Magento extension is an effective tool for providing fast, maximally relevant and personalized results to customer’s queries. A great enhancement of the default Magento search functionality.
- Fully compatible with all Magento Security Patches.
3 advanced search engines
xSearch - calculates ‘search weight’ for products. The metrics is based on the amount of different product attributes used by customers in the search process.
Sphinx - a fulltext Linux/Windows- based on engine capability of searching extremely large databases quickly and effectively.
Solr - a Lucene-based, open source engine designed for fulltext search. Able to scale across a big number of servers, running real-time queries and data analytics of billions various documents.
Search priority results
Extended Search calculates products' search weight and arranges search results accordingly.
Product 'Search Weight' metric is calculated dynamically for each query and is similar to what is used in major search engines. 'Search Weight' is based on the amount/ratio of product attributes used by customers when searching.
On top of that, the extension allows defining the priority for any product attribute. Thus you can adjust search results and change the way the product 'Search Weight’ is calculated.
3 options for search accuracy
Extended Search extension can easily process both simple and complex search queries. The module is equipped with 3 advanced options for search accuracy:
- Any - shows the search results that contain the whole search query, separate keywords and their combinations.
- All - delivers the results that have the whole search query and all its separate words combinations.
- Exact - brings only exact matches.
Typos and misspelled queries
Extended Search extension lets you add synonyms for any search query. Thus, a customer will be suggested the correct variant of the misspelled query and will be able to find the desired product more quickly.
When customers entered queries incorrectly or they're misspelled, the "Did you mean ... " message is displayed on the search results page.
Search products by attributes
With Extended Search users can easily narrow down their search to a specific product attribute.
The extension helps to find more accurate results. For example, if a customer wants to find the products by ‘Apple’ only, they can choose a ‘Brand’ attribute and search only by ‘Apple’ brand.
Related Searches feature
Related Searches feature allows you to display the results based on what other people have been searching your store for.
Basic Store Search Stats
With Extended Search Magento extension you can see the full list of search queries that resulted in a purchase.
Search Queries field can be added to each order to display a search keyword that was used to purchase any product from the order.

Magento Extended Search extension
Great search solution
The only minus is missing autocomplete functionality.
The best Magento search extension out there!!!
Stunning, relevant and the best in class! Have been using it for a couple of weeks, and hope that we'll get a larger increase in conversions as a result.
P.S. Had a glitch when we were installing it. Within 24 hours the issue was resolved (thanks Julia)!
Increased search conversion by 15%
Support is AAA+++
It does the job.
Currently, I do not use it with Sphinx or Solr (but I will move to Sphinx in a while, I think, in order to take load off Magento).
I'm using it with the built-in Magento search engine (modified by this extension).
And I just made meta keywords attribute searchable in quick search. The search results are so much better now, AND I am able to manually influence certain searches just by adding some meta keywords to a product.
I highly recommend Extended Search. It improves dramatically the often bad search results Magento delivers by default.
A must have add on!
You can't go wrong!!
By far the BEST search in the market!
The team is a thrill to work with, and I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a better Magento experience.
