43% of users on Ecommerce websites go directly to the search bar.
More importantly, conversion rates are 2x higher among customers who use on-site search vs. those who don’t.
And 12% of customers will go to a competitor’s website if their search doesn’t return relevant results.
Which is why businesses are increasingly focusing on their on-site search user experience.
