Algolia offers unlimited space to define your own set of rules

Based on an “If This Then That” logic, Rules let you make precise modifications to your Search & Discovery experience, leveraging various strategies applied in any situation.

Relevance rules can be extended to search term synonyms.

Rules can be triggered by specific search terms (and automatically extended to its synonyms) or applied without any user query needed.

Relevance rules are impacted by context.

Rules can take into account various contextual elements (device used, category page, geolocation).

Decide when rules are active.

Rules can be limited to a specific time-range or be “always on”.
