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. For details, see Adding terms to a dictionary.
  2. Click menu > Search > Dictionary Spotlight.
  3. In the Create widget, click New Page Promo Dictionary Spotlight.

  4. Under Promo, complete the fields as necessary. This is the promo that will be associated with the term and serve as the spotlight in search. For details, see Page Promo.
  5. From the Term list, select the search term with which you want to associate the promo that will appear in search.
  6. From the Dictionary list, select the dictionary with which you want to associate the promo. This field is helpful in case a term applies to more than one dictionary, ensuring that the spotlight you create applies only to the intended term.
  7. Click Save.

When visitors search on the term you selected in step 5, Brightspot includes the promo at the top of the search results. This includes if a visitor searches any misspellings or variants that you associated with the term. For details, see Adding terms to a dictionary.
