What are Search Recommendations?

Search recommendations help you serve particular pages to your users based on their search terms. This is helpful in case you happen to have content that is fresh and may not be as highly ranked for a given topic. As an Admin, you can input queries and then link those queries to specific pages that will automatically get listed in the top position for that search. Here's how:


  1. Enter the Query and Page Link in your Control Panel.

  • Enter the search term you're targeting (this can be a single word or a single phrase, but not multiple terms and phrases).
  • Enter the page location. It's OK to include "" or whatever root domain you have for your site in the full URL.
  • Give the result a title if you would rather over-ride the title of the page you're linking to for this particular query.
  • Click Save Changes.
