Setting parameters for a more focused search that yields relevant search results.
While you may not have any control over what a user might enter into a search field, with Brikit Targeted Search you do have control over the scope of the initial search as well as what types of filters can be used to further narrow the search. Setting these parameters ahead of time will result in improved search outcomes where users can quickly find exactly what they're looking for.
Consider the content you would like your users to be able to find.
Think about the desired outcome of your users' search experience in a given environment. What kinds of content are they expecting to see in their list of search results? What kinds of filters would be helpful to them in this context? Where does this content live on your site? How is this particular content different from other content on the site?
Consider how this desired content can be identified and differentiated from other content on the site.
Does this content live in a particular space or spaces with a particular space category label? Is the content itself labeled, and if so, do these labels already exist as Targeted Search filters within filter groups? Is the desired content limited to pages, or should attachments and/or blog posts also be included in the search results?
It is possible that you will need to move some content around or spend some time building filter groups and applying labels to content if things are not already set up the way you'd like.
