Frequently Asked Questions About HeyDay's Search Platform

No, we believe in online freedom and we never track the user as a user. We will not collect or share any of your personal information. The HeyDay tool collects only relevant data.

HeyDay is GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) compliant. What we require from every website that uses our system is to be GDPR compliant.

Computer hardware and software underwent extensive development in recent years. Computers became so powerful, with incredible computing power that allows the running of complex software. The increased computing powers have enabled the unhindered running of services and tools like virtualization, flexible programming languages, cloud services with plenty of solutions, seemingly right out of the box.

These modern tools have paved the way for simplified developmental processes, which, a few years ago would need an unimaginable amount of resources. Also, these modern tools and services have enabled the running of software services and applications over the internet, making them available all across the globe with little trouble.

Yes, we said little trouble, which means that there are still some limitations, which are directly linked to computing power, bandwidth and cost money to run. But for the more standard or excellently optimized services, these available tools are enough for smooth operation.

When we began developing HeyDay, we set our goals high. We wanted to deliver a truly exceptional service that we would be able to offer for free, while still maintaining the high level of quality of service. To be able to meet our set goals, we needed to create an exceptional operational strategy. Yes, as you can see, we succeeded in our efforts.

By working carefully and hard, we developed HeyDay just like you build a house: from the ground up. We laid strong foundations by creating our proprietary code using C/C++. This enables us to squeeze every last byte and clock cycle from the server hardware, and at the same time, our code also utilizes the multi-core CPUs and the newly available Linux kernel system calls.

The result is, as you can guess, why our seemingly simple code that you just copy and paste into your website works so nicely.

No. Heyday will not show ads. Also In the future, when Heyday ad exchange will be available, it will still be all up to the users to choose if they want to display ads or not.

There is no limit whatsoever.

Heyday search has full page indexing wit autocomplete and spell corrections. It is a full-blown search engine (site search). See our features

Heyday indexer analyzes the page structure, giving ranking for keyword-to-page in respect to the word importance in that page (i.e. words in page title have higher rank for that page that just word in the page body).

In addition, the algorithm takes into account page freshness, relevancy as detected by search query / page clicks (requires sufficient statistics accumulation).

Yes. Heyday admin has server features such as “stop words”, “filters” and actual search index manipulation that gives control over the search results.

New pages that are detected are added to the indexing queue and about every 5 minutes, heyday indexer adds them into the indexer.

Yes. Modified pages are added to the indexing queue and are reindexed about every 5 minutes.

The autocomplete is kept fresh together with the indexing process - about every 5 minutes.
