How many indices?

I’m just starting out with Algolia and can’t find a direct answer for this question. For an ecommerce site should I create an index for categories, products, product images, or are they related enough to put them all in the same index?

Hi @jake1, the best way to answer your question is to forget about Algolia for now and think about how you want your search UI to look like.

Draft a sketch of your dream search interface, how people can use it, what type of content is inside and is clickable. And then only you can go back to Algolia and see what kind of data you need.

We can’t tell you in advance how to build your index, you first need to define how your UI will look like and be.

Let me know how it goes.

I figured it out building the index and replicas somewhat by following the vue ecommerce example. Now I have to make the UI :-x
