Smart Search on Woocommerce

Two months ago, Jan 23, we released the Searchanise app built specifically to enrich the product search for WooCommerce, a WordPress plugin. You asked us, and we made it. The application is seamlessly embedded on WordPress/WooCommerce and has its own admin panel that does not require additional customization to fit the platform. The core functionality of the Smart Search is made considering the latest design trends. However, you are free to make it unique to comply with your brand overall look and feel.

Meanwhile, you get acquaintance with the Woocommerce Search plugin storefront: and admin panel:, let me introduce what the actual Smart WooCommerce Search is. Look at this simple but powerful dashboard from the inside.

Nothing diverts your attention, only the most relevant functions are there. Let see them in more details.
Functionality powered by Searchanise to delight the WooCommerce websites
Relevant search with autocomplete and suggestions
As your customer types in the search box, the Search Results Widget shows relevant products, categories, and pages with pagination, 2 views, and 5 sortings.

Look at how sorting is implemented on this website:
An unlimited number of customizable filters let the entrepreneur adjust price, availability, vendor, product type, tags, and reviews.

The Instant Search Widget setting makes it possible to modify Colors, Content, Sticky widget, Translations, Product Labels, Custom HTML, and Custom CSS. The Content tab allows you to set suggestions:
If nothing is found matching to the user request, Smart Search will offer relevant offers or tips complying with the request using synonyms. While a user is typing in the search bar, the word in search can be autocompleted with the corresponding ending. You can additionally adjust the Stop Words setting. The stop-word list helps the shoppers to achieve more relevant search results. The words from this list will be filtered out, and won't be taken into consideration. By default, the articles "a", "the", and some prepositions are considered as the stop words.

There is one more useful option for Smart Search. It is called a Sticky Widget. This option makes it feasible to diversify the standard search by getting the search box stuck to any place on the page of the storefront: top or bottom right and left. Product labels help to draw the attention of your customers on your special offers and speed up the conversion rate on the website.

To avoid zero results, apply 'Did you mean' suggestion.

That is how you can see this all-in-one search widget on the real WooCommerce website:
The Searchanise merchandising is keyword-driven. It lets you assign keywords to products. You can apply this feature to enhance more relevant customers' requests to the same product. With the help of merchandising functionality, you can show a product ranked higher in the search if it gets into the search results, or matches the particularly assigned keyword. You can also give the product a low priority and put it to the bottom of the search results. That is how a merchant can tailor the ranking of his products using Searchanise functionality. Isn't it a great idea to rank what you need? Below are the products shown in the search in accordance with ranking.
With smart analytics, it is easy to rack your website performance and search history since the very start of your store. The WordPress Smart Search plugin will get the insights of your customers: what they explore and what they discover. You will be able to monitor the effectiveness of your promotions, suggestions and other merchandising actions. The analytics will help you to make informed decisions about how to improve your WooCommerce website and boost conversions with the help of a wisely finetuned search.
