Search: Ultimate Sphinx Search

Unsurpassed Functionality

Sphinx Search Ultimate is our flagship search product, and is a leading search extension on the magento extensions market.

1471 companies already use this search module

86 store owners have already given their feedback, and do you know why?

Because we found the solution to two key search problems!

  • Search results give 1000’s of variants, but the first page does not have the product or products the client was looking for.
  • Your customer does not know the exact name of the product he/she is looking for, and as a result cannot find it.

So, what will you get after installing this search module?

1) High Accuracy & Relevancy

A lot of modules still work according to the principle that ‘if nothing, we have to at least offer ‘some’.

We refused this approach, and instead chose the concept of ‘clean search’. This means showing products only when it is certain that the search results match the search request.

If there is no exact or similar product, we don’t fill the page with random results. Instead we offer the customer some useful search suggestions. – ‘Maybe you were searching for xyz or yzx product?’

Why create confusion and waste your customer’s valuable time? Even Google shows the search result «Nothing is found» when nothing is found.

We give search results that are accurate and that matter.

2) Search Results from the First Letter

More often than not, your customer may not know how to spell the product they’re looking for.

Our interactive search box will start showing results immediately as the customer types. There will be a dropdown with your product names and images populating dynamically. Your customer can now quickly find the products they’re looking for, thus increasing the likelihood of conversion.

3 is the Magic Number

We combined 3 powerful search products into 1 Ultimate Search product.

Now we can adjust the module for any area and any item. It can be adapted for niche products and store specific configurations.

The Bottom Line

Search usage at least doubles, which inevitably increases conversion.

Ecommerce research shows that the more a customer interacts with the functions of the website, the more likely the customer is to purchase.

We are confident this product will add a noticeable difference for you and your customers within the first 30 days! We back this sentiment with our 30 Day Money Back Guarantee.

Do you query data from cache or making database requests to get data?

Hi, Our current plugin for search, query multiple databases every time it search or display ajax auto complete. If DB cache the queries, then this process took 3-4 seconds. But if query is not cached on db, this can take around 20+ seconds, which is unacceptable (We have around 50,000+ products). Will your extension face the same issue or do you cache data or index data somehow to make it faster? Thank you
Asked by: phamtn8
Hello, Our extension not perform mysql queries for search. Extension use sphinx engine (average search time for 50k ~ 0.1 sec) Also our autocomplete extension use internal cache system (response time for cached queries < 0.2 sec) * native magento search perform mysql queries for search, but cache results (cache located in db table catalogsearch_results)

Do we have to install sphinx or does it come with the extension?

Asked by: GFWerb
If you have more 20000 products, we suggest install external sphinx engine on server. In other case, you can use extension builtin engine.

About the Developer

This extension was developed by and is supported by Mirasvit

Search: Sphinx Search Ultimate is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 176.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Extension, Best support on Magento Extension ever received! have been trying out a few search modules to improve the poor default Magento search. Purchased, installed and worked straight out the box and we have many modules installed, it has a check feature so once installed, click this and it tells you if any conflicts etc. I requested by ticket a change to align the new search box with our own, it was only a few pixels out - this was done with 30 minutes of ticket raised with full email communication throughout and also gave advice on auto-complete and auto spell check. We used Category Meta keywords field as high level check for search, this also made us clean our category keywords and for 1200 sku's took 1 hour. You can then also state, look in this field first, then sort on a lesser field. This was so easy to configure. We know have perfect search results for our customers which will help with our bounce rate when search was used before. A MUST HAVE! 10/10 for extension use and support. I will recommend this to all my fellow Magento users. Thank you, Rob.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bug: This extension is not working with Layered Navigation Hi, I am using magento community version 1.9 and I have integrated this extension but it is not working with Layered Navigation module. I am filtering search result with Mana layered Navigation but it is still showing me the same result. It is not applying the layered navigation filter on search result. When I am removing this mirasvit extension and applying filter with default search module it is working fine. Would request you please provide help for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best search extension We choose it from many alternatives. Works great. Some minor cons: — if come products don't have images you will have to write somу css to show them nice in autocomplete box — after update to Magento 1.9 minimal price of grouped products were not showing correctly Support team speak Russian what is very useful for us.
