Advantages of Algolia search engine

Integrating Algolia with your store helps you in the following ways:


Algolia search engine ensures speed at every point in the processing workflow. For example, search requests always have priority over the indexing operations, to guarantee an optimal experience for the end-users.


It helps in finding all records that match a query, then ordering them with the best ones first. Here are some examples of the ways the engine compares records.

  • Typos
  • Query matching
  • Word synonym
  • Title / Description
  • Popularity

After adding up the answers to these questions, some records have a stronger or weaker relevance. It’s what ultimately determines the order of the results.


Find and rank records are openly available for verification. Moreover, you can configure and set engine defaults as per your needs.
