The Issuu search service accepts search requests as input, and returns search results as output.
- Search requests are simple HTTP requests to the Issuu search engine.
- Search results are returned in JSON format, as specified in the search request
When a publication is added to Issuu, the publication is indexed by our search engine. All text in the publication is converted to lower-case during indexing. Therefore there is no difference between searching for "Bob" or "bob": searches are not case-sensitive. Text from a publication is indexed on a per-page as well as per-document basis, therefore searches can return a page or a document.
Documents can be viewed via a link to the document:
Or a link to a specific page within the document, in this case page 3:
Information that applies to the entire document (user, title, tags, etc) is also inherited by the individual pages of the document. See the Appendix for a list of indexed fields.
The Issuu Search service expects and returns UTF-8 encoded data. Requests to the service should be URL-encoded.
