Why Search Sucks (and Understanding What It Takes to Fix It)

A session at University of Illinois Web Conference

Friday 7th April, 2017

In all the projects, Virgil has completed in his 18+ years of web, search ALWAYS seems to be an afterthought. Organizations not only fail to understand its importance, but also the effort and planning it takes to create awesome and relevant search results for your visitors. In this session, we will delve into the dark side of cleaning up your search results, practicing some strong planning and query magic to help to pull out better results and happier visitors! This talk will help walk you through the opportunities of solid search strategy, reveal many of the challenges you will face both technologically and content-wise, and provide some quick tips you could implement tomorrow to improve your results significantly.
