Search ― Advanced Sphinx Search Pro

Advanced Sphinx Search Pro replaces default search with the Sphinx-powered search. So search works faster and search results are much more relevant. Using a Sphinx search engine increases conversion of visitors who look up the product on the website by more than 50%!

Product search connects your products to the shoppers searching for them, helping you drive sales to your store. On average, 20% of visitors use the search. These are the visitors who know what they want and are looking for it to buy. These visitors make a half of your revenue. That is why the quality and speed of product search significantly affects the sales. All these tasks are performed by Magento Advanced Search extension.

Advanced Sphinx Search Pro can significantly improve the speed and quality of search results. This Magento search module replaces the standard search of Magento by search of enterprise level provided by Sphinx.

How does it work?

Sphinx search engine indexes the database products of Magento store and gathers the necessary information for searching to a special data storage. When a user makes a search in the online store, our Magento Advanced Search module refers with the search query to the Sphinx to obtain search results and displays them to a user. Everything happens very quickly.

About the Developer

This extension was developed by and is supported by Mirasvit

Rated 5 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by It works great The Magento search out of the box leaves a lot to be desired, but Sphinx Advanced Search Pro almost instantly makes it 1000% better. I'd prefer if there was a magento connect extension manager install method instead of having to copy files directly to Magento. That's my only gripe though. October 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best Search interface for Magento I have used this extension for a couple of months already and it is absolutely an amazing one. The visual auto-complete results that come up instantly as you type is stunning, it displays images of the product with descriptions and it is blazing fast. For me, I use simple settings in search rules which work out the best for my situation. The service is definitely 5 star. The support team is very efficient and they are very professional and fast. Definitely recommended. I am using it on Magento September 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Search Engine for Magento We have been using this extension for 2 years and have never needed to look at another or look back. Prior to this, we tried several other options, but nothing was working. This extension worked from day one and our users really appreciate this search feature as compared to our competition. Support from Mirasvit is always wonderful. All emails get replied within a few minutes and errors, if any, get rectified in a couple of hours on all weekdays. August 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Another great module by Mirasvit this search module enables you to choose name, category, brand etc while indexing the search data which is really a top feature on base magento feature. the results also come in category,brand and product pages separately which is another added advantage. Great module by Mirasvit and their support awsome. June 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing extension, exceptional support This extension is a dream - solves a lot of problems with Magento Search. The Mirasvit Support guys respond immediately to emails and helped me install and configure the extension within hours. Highly recommended. February 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great extension and support This extension works very well and does exactly what is described. Support is great too and fast response! They helped me to configured the extension. June 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great support and plugin Their support team were great at helping us get it working. We had a conflict with another plugin and required help installing Sphinx on our server. Plugin works well too. March 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works like a dream Wonderful extension, a must for anyone who wants to make search better February 20, 2013
Rated 0 out of 5 by This extension is working great! I've been looking for a reasonably priced search extension for a while now and finally found something solid. Great support and fast response behind the scenes too. Immediately helped me with making few tweaks and modifications. Thank you and keep up the great work! January 11, 2013
Rated 0 out of 5 by So far so good!! Greatly improves the search function. I completely agree with btd777. The consideration of categories is a must. If that were to be implemented, I would have nothing but good things to say. Thanks! December 20, 2012

Our extension can use 2 search engines: built-in sphinx engine (default mode) and external sphinx engine.

For use external sphinx engine, you need install sphinx on server (our support team can install sphinx engine, if you provide accesses to server)
