Search Your WordPress Site with Elastic Search
Doesn’t WordPress have search built in?
Yes, it does, but the default search is very basic.

It’s not able to handle any advanced filtering
Elastic Search is an open-source search server written in Java based on a technology called Lucene (open- source search software by Apache).
It uses a standalone database server that provides a RESTful interface to accept and store data in a way that is optimized for search.
