Getting started with the Jetpack Search plugin
From the Jetpack Search plugin page in WP Admin, you can see your Record Meter, which shows the number of site records in your search index and the number of search requests made so far. See this support page for more information about the Jetpack Search Record Meter.
If you have chosen the free plan, note that this includes fewer records (posts, pages, products, media library files, and custom post types) and search queries. There’s more information about this on the Jetpack Search product billing support page.
To customize the styling and adjust the settings for Jetpack Search results, click Customize search results, and you will be brought to your site’s Search Customizer. You can customize the widgets related to your search as well. There’s more information about this on the Customizing Jetpack Search page.
Jetpack Search and Instant Search are enabled by default after the plan is activated and Jetpack is connected.
Jetpack Search includes My Jetpack, which is a dashboard for managing your Jetpack products and plans in one place. You can access this dashboard from WP Admin → Jetpack → My Jetpack. You can also find Search there.
Clicking Manage from there will take you to the Jetpack Search plugin page, which shows your site records and search request data.
