How many times have you used a websites search and found the product results irrelevant, disappointing or totally unrelated? Tried various keywords and spent hours looking for specific information to come up with nothing?
Algolia might just be the key to your search success – the program gives you the ability to tailor search results per query. For example, if you were looking for a dress you can look for skirts at the same time. Nifty hey?
According to their website, Algolia “strives to create a world-class developer experience & end-user experience… to enable every developer & product team to build consumer-grade search.” So what does this mean exactly?
More relevant search results. Faster search results. The ability to have autocomplete search results. Algolia also allows you to use a visual dashboard to fine tune a product’s ranking based on features such as popularity, profit margins and so forth- any data that is specific to your business. Algolia is also considered to better than the default search results provided by Magento and can easily integrate with Magento 1 and Magento 2.
With their Analytics tool, you can pinpoint what your customers are searching for, which results they select, filters they use and how searches turn into conversions. People who search generally have a higher conversion rate than those who don’t, so it is imperative to make sure your search tool is working well.
