How does Search.io handle stemming?

Stemming is used by search engines to return relevant results for search queries using a shared word stem even if the query the user has typed differs from the available results. For example, a user types in the query 'dental' but your website only uses the word 'dentist'.

Search.io uses a stemming algorithm to ensure that the user is still returned results for their query as the two terms share the same word stem.
