Dashboard Result Management and Ranking

Synonyms improve search results by linking words with similar meanings. When a user enters a search term, the search returns results for any synonyms of the word defined as a synonym in the AddSearch dashboard.

For example, if on an e-commerce website selling footwear, “sneakers” and “running shoes” are defined as synonyms, a customer searching for “sneakers” will also see results for “running shoes”. This can make search results more comprehensive and relevant, leading to a better user experience.


To add synonyms follow these instructions:

  1. Login to your AddSearch Account
  2. Go to Synonyms under Manage results
  3. Click Add new synonym group +
  4. Type in a comma-separated list of synonyms each row
  5. Click Save after making changes

Please note, that synonym keywords don’t work with Pinned results. You have to do a setup separately in Pinned results.
