SOLR Search

Now we know that most people start their browsing journeys with a global engine like Google, but once you’ve landed on the right site, we think the site’s own search should be sufficient for finding things locally. And yet you’d be surprised how many content rich organisations keep their content hidden from their own internal search engines by locking it up in not-properly indexed PDFs, sending their readers packing back to Google. And that’s why we’ve started using the Apache solr search. It’s an amazingly powerful search for organisations whose content stretches into the 1000s. It searches through PDF content and lets you control whether it’s a document’s title, index term or body text etc. that should decide whether it gets pushed up or down a search results list.
