If you already have an AddSearch account, you can create other accounts from the AddSearch dashboard that link to your existing account.

Each created account starts a free seven-day trial that provides you with a separate search index, settings, users, statistics, and the same features as the Professional plan.

Creating other accounts is useful if you want to test new settings without affecting your current setup or if you have clients who need an account with a separate index, settings, and billing.

Instructions

To create a new AddSearch account, follow these instructions:

  1. Log in to your AddSearch Account

Creating the new account allows for choosing between a crawler and an API index. If you select the crawler index, our crawlers collect and index your website’s content.

If you select the API index, you need to use the indexing API to add documents to the index. Please note that setting up the API index requires technical expertise.

    1. Click Set up crawling to choose crawler index
    2. Click Continue with API to choose API index
