The tools needed to build great search.

Create a search experience from scratch with a point-and-click interface. Discover previously unimplemented features and understand what's fully possible with Yext.

Use pre-defined components (like SearchBar, SpellCheck, Facets and UniversalResults) to easily build an Answers experience, or add further modifications with custom components.

Tailor results pages to your liking. Add maps, clickable phone numbers, images, videos, info cards, and CTAs—all within your brand guidelines.

Automate data ingestion of your website content to make it searchable.


When you buy Answers, you get both superior search technology and our search UX expertise. We are always testing new user experiences and interfaces for Answers to see which ones perform best. In a recent study, we tested 1,200 users in 21 different experiments to understand how task types and search bar placement affect users’ search behavior. Curious about the results?
