WordPress search can’t find much.

The biggest problems are:

SearchWP makes Custom Fields searchable!

Custom Fields (post meta) are completely ignored by WordPress search! Use SearchWP to instantly make all of your valuable data searchable.

SearchWP works with all Custom Fields in any way you’d like, including data from popular plugins like:

and more! Further, SearchWP makes it easy to customize & refine the data during indexing which ensures you’re getting the best possible search results.

SearchWP can search your documents!

You can tell SearchWP to extract text from documents (PDF, Office, plain/rich text, and more!) uploaded to the WordPress Media library and make that content searchable.

Document search results integrate directly into your results template, showing the Media Library title and a link to that Media entry.

Futher, SearchWP is able to extract a contextual excerpt that trims around found search terms.

SearchWP can search everything

Many modern WordPress sites use far more than the content types available directly through WordPress.

Custom database tables are used to significantly improve performance when necessary, but doing so excludes that content from WordPress search.

SearchWP was built with this in mind, and SearchWP has the ability to index (and make searchable) content from virtually any local database table.

SearchWP knows Taxonomies & Shortcodes

Taxonomy terms like Categories and Tags contain fantastic, search-oriented content.

Native WordPress search isn't able to consider that content.

Shortcodes are immensely popular in WordPress, but native WordPress search isn't able to work with the output.

SearchWP allows you to incorporate taxonomy terms and Shortcode output in your search operation!
