Most users take powerful website search for granted. But do you know what engineering resources are required to develop, scale, and maintain a robust search infrastructure? The costs of staffing engineers on search and the opportunity costs of not pursuing other development projects can quickly pile up.
Evaluating the costs and benefits of building site search internally comes with many questions:
- What open source components are available to build a site search engine internally?
- What steps are required to develop a sophisticated natural language processing system?
- How can site owners create a search engine that learns from user behavior over time?
