  • A few things you’ll learn from site search:
    By simply adding a site search bar on your website it generally helps build a higher conversion rate because it allows customers to immediately search for something if they cannot find it upon entering the site.

    Search your popular terms on your website. Do your products come up?
    If not, look into why – you may have settings disabled that prevent your products from showing, missing a huge opportunity to convert these users.

    Also, when checking the search terms in analytics, take note: Do any products you DON’T offer come up? You already know that someone using site search is probably more likely to convert so it’s something your target audience wants. If possible, invest in that inventory.

    Look for any commonalities among searches. If your customers are regularly searching for a keyword it could be an opportunity to add a Call to Action button on the homepage to allow them to find it easier.
    TORI: Or use that as an offer for the Deal of the Day or as a featured product on the homepage
