AddSearch provides you with search suggestions. When your visitor types in a search query, AddSearch displays a list of search suggestions under the search box.

AddSearch generates search suggestions automatically from searches made on your website. Search suggestions become more relevant over time when the number of searches increases.

Search suggestions may provide longer (focused) search queries. The benefit of a focused suggestion is that it requires less typing as the search query can be chosen from the list. Search suggestions may be helpful when your visitor uses a mobile device where the typing experience is not always optimal.

For instance, a search query for a ‘guitar’ can provide suggestions like ‘acoustic guitar. ‘, ‘acoustic guitar straps,’ or perhaps a suggestion as focused as ‘acoustic guitar strings extra light.’

In addition to automatically generated search suggestions, AddSearch allows you to manage search suggestions with custom fields and custom suggestions. Furthermore, the blacklisting tool allows you to block automatically generated suggestions you find irrelevant.
