Which Search Should I use for my search engine


I am putting together a search engine.

At first I thought FUZZY matching was what I wanted, but after experimenting I am not so sure.

For building a custom search engine, which search techniques do you recommend?

  • Match

  • query_string

  • A combination of those or some other types of searches?

Any feedback would help.

You'll have to be much more specific in what you want to accomplish.


I want something similar to google.

If I have a document with a message field, with the text :

"The members would like renewal information"

I'd like to issue a search like:
"member renewal" and get that document.

Is that a multi_phrase, fuzzy , or should I issue more than 1 search type, then combine the results?
