DatoCMS Site Search > Overview


    DatoCMS Site Search is a way to deliver tailored search results to your website visitors. You can think of it as a replacement for the now discontinued Google Site Search.

    There are many third-party services out there that fill this need (like SwiftType, Algolia, and Cludo). Our solution seeks to be the best deal for the majority of websites:

    • extremely easy to integrate with your static website

    • completely customizable in terms of look & feel

    • minimal configuration needed

    • nicely handles multilingual websites

    • included in the price of DatoCMS with no additional charges

    How it works

    • Every time your website finishes being deployed, we'll crawl it to fetch updated content.

    • From your frontend, you can make AJAX requests to our Content Management API to present relevant results to your visitors. We also provide React and Vue search widgets that simplify the process.
