HUGE WEAKNESS: It doesn't search your pages. The search functionality is creates doesn't search your pages. It only searches your posts. SECOND WEAKNESS: Swiftype is NOT FREE. It is COSTLY. You are paying a third party to run a server to search your website and create "relevant" search from the data it obtains from your website. And if it gets the relevance wrong, you have to manually correct it on their website. This is tedious work. The minimal cost is $79 a month and goes up the searches and documents are used on your website. BASIC COST OF SWIFTYPE: STANDARD Search Account: Your site is crawled once every 3 days - so any updates won't show up for 3 days. $79 PER MONTH for 5k documents, 50k searches, 1 engine + $25 per additional 5k documents + $25 per additional 50k searches + $50 per additional engine --- PRO Search Accouint: Your site is crawled every 12 hours - so any updates won't show up for 12 hours. $199 PER MONTH for 10k documents, 100k searches, 1 engine + $25 per additional 5k documents + $25 per additional 50k searches + $100 per additional engine ---

Super plugin, no doubt on that score. Seems to lack many of the features (image, excerpt etc) of the other 'instant search' engines, but that shouldn't matter as usually these features are outweighed by costs. Except in the case apparently of Swiftype, who for some inane reason are charging DOUBLE the amount of other engines. I did find an engine earlier that were offering a free plan, complete with images and excepts, which I won't mention here for fear of being tarred a headhunter, but no matter how adept Swiftype is, they will lose out every time to these new companies coming along. I think they call it - 'power to the people' - yes?

Доброго времени суток, тестировал для своего сайта плагины для поиска, этот плагин сразу запросил API, зарегистрировался без проблем, только как оказалось этот плагин бесплатный на 14 дней, дальше нужно приобретать его, самый дешевый вариант 299 доларов, однако зачем мне приобретать на сайт визитку где посещаемость в месяц 20 человек ? По стоимости больше чем сам некоммерческий проект. Каждый разработчик зарабатывает как может и сам выбирает путь, но политика этого плагина мне не понравилась.

Not recommended. Cheaper (or even fully functional and free) and better options

I'm sure Swiftype is a good service but I think it's overpriced. Their PRO plan is good for nothing as all the goodies are for the Business plan which will cost you 249 $ per month I pay that much for my VPS.
