Presented at Activate 2018
In the past year, we’ve rebuilt Search at Reddit to be more scalable while improving our relevancy. In this session, we will talk about problems we’ve faced and solutions we’ve implemented to improve the search experience on Reddit for users to easily discover the communities and posts they’re looking for. We’ll also dive into using user click signals to get the insight into what users are looking for, what is the most engaging areas for our users, and how we increase time-on-site through relevant content discovery. We’ll also talk about challenges we’ve faced in scaling our Solr cluster to the 350M+ users that visit Reddit every month.
