Algolia

If you have a dedicated developer who has the technical know-how to delve deep into Algolia's documentation to figure out what makes it tick, this is the product for you. Algolia's framework is extremely powerful, making search instantaneous and providing users with results at break-neck speeds. If all you need is great search, but you do not require a complex relevancy algorithm running it, Algolia will work well for you. The more complex your use case, the more expensive the product becomes.

HiConversion

I really think any ecommerce website would benefit from HiConversion. All websites can use optimization, but I am not sure how you'd establish the ROI on a site that is not trying to drive conversions / sales. I think as marketers we often believe we know what our customers want or what we think will work for them, but HiConversion allows us to really get to the bottom of what helps and what hurts us in a quantifiable way. We have done campaigns on our product page, our shopping cart and our homepage and each one has resulted in a significant lift in conversions.

Pros

Algolia

  • Algolia is brain-dead simple to set up. I've implemented search with Algolia in a dozen different ways now, and it never took me longer than a few minutes to get the functionality I want. With Algolia, the only challenge is designing your search UI -- if you don't want to use their baked in UI solutions.
  • Results come back incredibly fast. I'm not sure how Algolia does it, but every keystroke I make in a search field returns new results instantly. It's hard to believe that I'm searching large datasets on a remote server when it works so fast.
  • Very little customization is needed for 99% of use-cases. Algolia's out of the box setup works great, and it takes no prior knowledge to set up.

HiConversion

  • Allow us to do A/B and multivariate testing of various treatments on our website. We can see how individual changes perform and how they perform in conjunction with other tests on the site.
  • Provide data to see where in the sales funnel there is room for improvement and how tiny incremental changes at each stage can have a dramatic affect on our total sales.
  • Using their years of experience and knowledge of industry best practices, they help come up with both UX and UI suggestions for us to test for our specific site, audience and use cases.

Cons

Algolia

  • Algolia can be a bit complex -- for smaller companies or companies without many tech resources, it may be difficult to implement and use without the help of a third party
  • Manually manipulating search results (for specific queries having listings show up first) is a bit difficult to do without custom developing that functionality
Michael Riess | TrustRadius Reviewer

HiConversion

  • We have had some issues with delays in the loading of treatments on our site which has made certain tests hard to accomplish or trust. This likely has a lot to do with our website speed, but has proved to be a challenge for us regardless.
  • Our team would have benefited from more hands on / in person training in the beginning, to allow us to better leverage all their tools. They have offered training but I believe we are still only scratching the surface.

We did have one occurrence where we maxed out our plan and the service didn't respond well. This is probably a very common scenario and it took half a day to get things back to normal with slow response time. Price is also a consideration. If you are restrained in that sense you might want to dedicate the time to having your own setup from the get-go.

Alternatives Considered

Algolia

Algolia at first seemed and proved to be the fastest compared to the other search engines. It is very easy to implement. Also, it had a 24x7 support which proved to be very useful. It is also useful for all types of clients weather it be organizations or individuals. It can also handle typos. It also focuses on features like API and SSL Security. Also, it is designed to search records, not pages. These were some of the reasons we went ahead with Algolia.

We have not used or fully evaluated any competitors. Our free trial with HiConversion was enough to convince us to move forward with them. They platform will easily pay for itself

  • We have good customer feedback on the Algolia search function
  • We are looking at other apps in development where we can also leverage the power of Algolia

HiConversion

  • We have seen a +9.85% lift in conversion rate in the 4 months we have been using them. We expect this number will continue to increase.
  • Testing we have done with HiConversion is allowing us to implement proven designs and experiences in to our upcoming new website launch.
