Yext is a search platform that helps you to answer questions about your brand, everywhere customers are asking them.
Built on a knowledge graph — a brainlike database — Yext Answers empowers you to build natural language search experiences using a unique three algorithm approach. Take advantage of best-in-class features like dynamic reranking, featured snippets, and query rules, whether you’re building site search, support search, doctor finders, or any other search experience.
Create an Answers Frontend
Choose how you want to integrate Answers with your apps or websites — for faster development use our Search UI SDK, for more flexibility Answers Core, and for full control use the Answers API directly.
Use our Knowledge API to push or pull data from the Knowledge Graph, Analytics, Reviews, or Listings in or out of Yext. Use this API to connect Yext to your other systems and use Webhooks to keep systems in sync.
Answers Headless React is a series of React bindings that make it easier to create a search experience in React. To get up and running with Answers Headless React, developers can use our React Site Search Starter, a sample app complete with universal and vertical search pages, and React components for search.
Use the Answers Search UI SDK to build an Answers search experience using our pre-configured components (using vanilla JS). This is best if you want to customize layouts, add your own stylesheet, and/or want to host the search experience on your own domain without an iframe.
Use the Answers Core SDK to build an Answers search experience within your own framework (React, Vue, Angular, etc). This is best if you don't want to deal with constructing your own network requests but want the flexibility of an API.
Guides are step-by-step instructions to accomplish a specific goal. You may find guides helpful if you aren’t quite ready to take on the full training but need to complete a task such as launching an Answers experience as quickly as possible.
