    Is there any way to create search synonyms?  For instance if you name your page "Site Photos" and someone searches for "site images" or "site pictures," is there any way to relate those terms?

    Other examples:  cap, hat
    sweater, shirt, tshirt, t-shirt, tee shirt
    dog, puppy, canine, puppies

    Also, is there a way to give higher importance for a search to specific pages? For instance if the natural search results for "site photos" shows you 20 photo pages, can I specify the most important result is the main "Site Photos" page?

    Hello Dan,

    Sitefinity is using Lucene.Net engine for the Search functionality. Lucene.Net itself could be extended to support this:
    Having that said, you should extend the Lucene engine and create your own search provider that works with the extended class.

    I hope this helps.
    Sincerely yours,
    the Telerik team
