The promotions feature allows you to create, style, and display a search item shown first in the search results. You can advertise the promotion on all searches or for specific keywords. You can also define a time limit for the promotion to hide the promotion after a particular date or time.

The Promotions feature allows for multiple active promotions simultaneously, but only one promotion will be shown in the search results simultaneously.

If you have created more than one promotion with the same keyword, the promotion highest on the promotions list on the Promotion page will be shown first. You can arrange the promotions with the arrow buttons next to the promotion.

Promotions’ benefit is guiding your visitors to the most important pages. For instance, you can promote products for a Black Friday sale or topical announcements on your website.
