      Expertrec Search Engine vs Azure Search opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      newmelchizedecsundararaj Azure search uses a single index to cater to all the web users. Hence webmaster does not control the ranking due to span issue. Since Expertrec has one index per website, webmasters have full control on their site ranking.
