The new marketing dashboard that's not just for marketers to love

Take control over your search and make the most of your analytics with our new dashboard.

We are excited to announce that we have listened to your feedback about the usability of our product, and as part of Funnelback version 15 our dedicated R&D team have developed a brand new Marketing Dashboard in the administration interface!

  • Discovering and using features is a lot easier: Awesome Funnelback features like Tuning or SEO Auditor were previously buried deep inside the interface, with users often unaware that they existed. This new dashboard exposes all Funnelback features on an equal foot and assists you in using them with suggestions and contextual help.
  • Hiding the technical complexity away: The new dashboard only shows what’s relevant to your search service. While the various back-end collections and technical components are hidden, you can still interact with all of the controls that impact on what your customer is seeing in your search.
  • For the marketing team: The new interface gives you instant access to all the features you need to analyse and optimize the search experience for your users: Search Analytics, Best Bets, Synonyms, Curator, SEO Auditor and Tuning.
  • For webmasters: Use the Accessibility Auditor to check your website compliance with WCAG guidelines, and the Content Auditor to gain an understanding of your content and metadata.

Let’s go on a quick tour of this new interface, shall we?

Tuning

Tuning is one of the most powerful but overlooked features of Funnelback. It allows Funnelback to automatically tune its ranking algorithm to be best suited to your content, based on a training set. The new dashboard makes editing the training set easier and provides suggestions about which documents and keywords to tune.
