Drupal and Funnelback - a brilliant match

Understanding the value of powerful search in your open-source CMS

Your web design team has selected Drupal, the open-source CMS of choice for millions of sites. Everyone is excited about the possibilities it offers. It even comes with built-in search to serve that quarter to half of users dependent on the search bar for navigation.

And with integrated search - what a weight off. You can just set it and forget it, leaving it to its work. After all, it’s just search -- right?

With many users trained by Amazon, Google and Netflix to lean on search for navigation, you might be losing out on potential revenue and constraining your most engaged users. After all, site search users know exactly what they're looking for.

Funnelback site search is CMS-agnostic, built to play nicely with any content. This includes searching across multiple domains or subsites, databases, multiple CMS solutions, and even maps. And a powerful machine learning algorithm behind the scenes helps you understand what your users want, automatically highlighting the most relevant data and allowing you to manually surface certain content, domains or formats over others.

This means you have one less thing to worry about in selecting a CMS. You will still enjoy the advantages and flexibility of a world-class search solution, either via a Drupal plug-in or a simple integration across platforms with Funnelback.
