    Expertrec Search Engine vs SearchBlox opinions
    pros, cons and recent comments

    Expertrec Search is an easy alternative to searchblox. It is also built on lucene and it comes with great default configurations. With searchblox, one gets a better search engine than going with Solr directly. Same with Expertrec.
