Software development stage: development
A product for monitoring search that reports on which terms were searched, with what frequency, how many results were generated, and how many times the user clicked through to a result. From the search monitoring tool, you can also set results in the site to show as "recommended" results in popular searches and activate a search results page feedback form.

ifSearchMonitor adds a screen in the Plone setup area where you can view the statistics for searches in your site. From that screen you can also choose popular searches to provide the user with recommended results (results show up above the rest of results in the results page).It also gives you the ability to add a feedback form into the search results page that lets users report if the results were useful or not (installing the ifSearchComment product).

It also let you associate suggested results to search terms through the tool in the preferences screen; in that way when showing the search results it will show the recommended resources you define too.

A few notes about how it works

  • The tool is not case sensitive, so "AIDS" and "aids" are recorded together
  • For multiple words, the tool does not care about the order, so "hiv aids" and "aids hiv" are recorded together
  • The information on statistics is stored in the zodb
