AddSearch Site Search


AddSearch Site Search plugin replaces the standard WordPress search with a lightning-fast search that gives you accurate results instantly. And when we say instant, we mean that literally: you get results even with the first character, giving your search a polished, high-end feel and responsive performance.


  • No coding required. Installing the plugin takes minutes: just copy one line of text, and you’re done.

  • Design customization. With a few simple CSS tweaks, you can adjust the look and feel of the search to match your website style.

  • Misspellings. ddSearch understands what your visitors search even if they make a typo.

  • Ranking control. Decide which pages and areas are more important than others.

  • Search statistics. You get full statistics on search behavior incl. most popular searches and searches with no results or clicks. You can also integrate your search analytics with Google Analytics.

  • Automatic content updates. AddSearch recrawls your site automatically and adds new content to the search.

  • PDFs, DOCs, and PPTs. Your search can provide PDFs, MS Word, and PowerPoint documents in the results.

  • Mobile-friendly. AddSearch’s UI adapts to any device, including desktops, tablets, and phones. You don’t need to do anything for full mobile support, even if your site isn’t responsive or mobile.

  • Language support. AddSearch works with any language.
