Coveo Implementation Guide

Content indexing and search is a mature market.

Relevance, however, is still a relatively new concept in this market, and knowledge around this notion is therefore quickly and continuously evolving.

The Coveo Platform implementation guide explains the core Coveo concepts and walks you through the best practices you should use when implementing Coveo for the first time. The PDF should be used as a complement to the rest of this guide and documentation, not as a replacement. It’s a great resource to help you learn the basics in a streamlined fashion before jumping into more specific topics.

Guide overview

This guide provides advice, leading practices, and links to technical documentation to help you plan, develop, deploy, and maintain a successful search solution that eventually reaches the highest stage of the Coveo Relevance Maturity Model​™ (CRMM). The tips and tricks in these guidelines are based on the experience of Coveo experts who have worked on multiple search integrations with Coveo.


While technical expertise with Coveo or with other content indexing solutions such as Solr, Lucene, Azure Search, or Elasticsearch can be useful in following this guide, it’s by no means required.
