Real-time indexing

What if I add a lot of content very frequently?

Some sites such as news sites or large online stores add new content very rapidly, and all of it needs to be included in the search immediately. For this purpose we support RSS feeds and provide an API.

RSS feeds

You can specify an RSS feed which contains all of the new content on your site. We poll the feed frequently, and as soon as new content is featured in the feed, we add it to the search. This feature is part of the Plus Pack.

Steps:

  1. Create the RSS-feed on your site (max 2 MB, preferably smaller)
  2. Login to your AddSearch account, and under Settings, scroll down till you reach the RSS-feeds header.
  3. Copy and paste your RSS Feed URL in the field, and click Save. Done! The RSS-feed will now be polled around every 5 minutes.

REST API

Use our API’s crawl endpoint to ping us when you add, remove or modify content. We’ll re-crawl the URL immediately and update your index in real-time.
