Jetpack Search is a powerful replacement for the search capability built into WordPress. It is a paid upgrade to the Jetpack plugin that provides higher quality results and an improved search experience. Upgrade today to get started.

For general features and FAQs, please see our information page.

Our advanced search solution is backed by Elasticsearch, Jetpack Stats, and our globally distributed data centers. We process your data with multiple technologies to build a modern search experience that improves website engagement, so visitors can search, refine their results, and find the best content and products.

This feature is available with a Jetpack Search subscription and is priced based on how much content is on your site.

Top Features:

  • Instant(*) search and filtering without reloading the page.
  • Real-time indexing supports your search as you type.
  • Theme compatibility for both desktop and mobile.
  • Prioritized results based on your site traffic give better results than the default WordPress search query and also better than other search plugins.
  • Spelling correction and highlighting matching terms.

(*) “Instant” search is also sometimes known as live search, “AJAX” search, realtime search, or dynamic search. As the user is typing the search results autoupdate to minimize how long it takes to find results. On mobile devices this is particularly important.
