Creating spotlights


A spotlight is a dictionary associated with a promo, and you can list spotlights at the top of site searches. For example, if you have a dictionary Environment that contains the word green, and you associate that dictionary with a promo for the article “Measuring Your Environmental Footprint.” When a visitor searches on the term green, Brightspot lists the promo at the top of the search results.


To create a spotlight:

  1. Open the required dictionary in the content edit page, or create a new one. Ensure the dictionary contains the terms with which you want to associate the promo.
  2. From the navigation menu, select Dictionary Spotlight. A list of spotlights appears.
  3. In the Create widget, click New Dictionary Spotlight. A content edit page appears.

  5. From the Promo list, select Set.
  6. Complete the form as required.
  7. Click Save.


When visitors search on the term you selected in step 4, Brightspot includes the promo at the top of the search results.
