Does it make the site slow?

searchIQ synchronize all the data from the site to its own fast servers which takes all the burden of search from the current site, as all search related action is performed on searchIQ servers. The site only shows results pulled from searchIQ servers.

Is there any analytical reporting?

searchIQ provides a near real-time analytical report in the dashboard. Report shows what users are searching, most clicked search results and many more. This can help you to focus on what is trending on your site.

Why searchIQ doesn't work for my website?

There could be two reasons for this, one your site doesn't have a search bar. If that is the case please go to options tab in the plugin and you can find an option to add search bar in the widget or in menu. Second, if your site has a search box then search box input element name could be other than 's' (by default WordPress give it as 's' like this 'input type="text" value="Type keywords..." name="s" id="s"'), please inspect the search box element and copy the name in "Search box name" field under "Options" tab in searchIQ plugin.
