    Just so everyone here knows - the InstantSearch+ app is terribly buggy and there is absolutely NO SUPPORT from the company. I'm extremely disappointed with the functionality of the search engine and I would NOT recommend anyone use it. 

    The following issues are HUGE problems for me:

    - The search engine finds absolutely NONE of my eCommerce products. Wow. 

    - There is no option for me to customize the contact form that appears when no search results are present. 


    Wix needs to make this a priority on their development roadmap because the Third Party apps aren't getting the job done.

      We apologize for the inconvenience you are experiencing.

      Please note that this is a third party app and that Wix cannot provide support for this product.

      However we strongly recommend you try to reach Instant Search here 




      As per your question regarding eCommerece products not showing up on search engines please note that the indexing of image usually takes longer than the indexing of the general site  in Google.  


      I see your pogocard.com domain has been indexed on 11 Jun 2014 which is great!


      To see if Google has indexed your website, as well as the last time your site was indexed i.e. to see a cached version of your website, enter your website’s URL with the word “cache:” before it in the Google search. For example, cache:www.mydomain.com. If your website comes up, this means that Google has already indexed it.


      Please note that your Wix site having been indexed is not the same as attaining a high rank according to a specific keyword phrase. Attaining a high ranking according to those keyword phrases may take time and continuous work.


      If your website is not appearing in search engine results when you perform a search using specific keywords, you may need to continue the process of Search Engine Optimization. To help you get the results you want, please read out SEO Learning Center pages for tips and advice.


      Please check here for more information about keywords and keyword density.


      Another explanation could be that you have employed certain techniques that have dropped your website’s page rank. You can read about these techniques in detail here.


      With the Wix SEO Monitoring Tool you will receive a Step by step guide to improve your site's SEO.


      In addition, you can also target what your customers are searching for and it will help your site to get found on Google.


      You may also consider using Google Webmaster Tools to help you in the optimization process.


      We are here should you require further assistance


      Many thanks, Barrios

    A basic search bar (sizable rectangle shape with text edit options. Search page with results, basic, but at least have text edit options.

    $5 a month for a search bar? On top on the eCommerce fee? That's highway robbery.

    Fair would be Wix's option is basic, while third party apps have more options. But this paying for apps on top of a fee is too much.

    The most important thing is that every app uses the same fonts that Wix offers. Common sense.

    Have you noticed their sample templates? Cool, stunning photos used to design. But all of them have no search bar!

    RE: Search Bar OR Search Button, Please.

    Hi, Wix. Everyone request a search button for free without any premium pay.

      I have merged your request into the relevant thread.


      First, please let me apologize for the inconvenience that is made.

      We are working as fast as we can to add the features requested by our users. Some features take more development than others and we are also working based on priority (also set by our users).

      The search box feature is a very big and delicate one as it can interrupt with other features. This is why it takes longer than expected. 

      As we are aware of the demand, we have added some external apps in the mean time.

      We apologize again for the inconvenience and we will update this thread as soon as we have news.

      Best regards, WIX Team.
