What is searchandising all about?
Searchandising is a contraction of the terms Search and Merchandising.
Recall your last visit to a conventional brick-and-mortar store. You probably found hanging banners, displays of special discounts, and catchy product arrangements on the store’s shelves. These attractive designs are all strategies to capture customers’ attention as they step into the shop, thereby increasing the chances of conversion.
Searchandising is the e-commerce imitation of this age-long practice in traditional stores. Simply put, searchandising allows you to flaunt your e-commerce merchandise through the search feature and in the most profitable way.
Four ways searchandising can boost your e-store performance
Helps your customers discover new products
Too often, your customers need to learn what they want. Many would abandon their search query if they knew a better deal. And if they’re satisfied with your search suggestion, they’d be grateful, make a purchase, and likely return.
Searchandising helps you inform your customers of new exciting products, improving their purchase journey and ensuring customer satisfaction.
Increase buyers' average shopping cart value
The convenience of online shopping increases bounces rates – since visitors have a vast majority of alternatives, it’s easy to click away after a few unsatisfied searches.
With exciting offers and seamless navigation, searchandising reduces the temptation for users to bounce off your site and increases buyers’ tendency to add more items to their shopping carts.
Increases your e-store sales
Informed by your business objectives, user behavior, and stock availability, you can tweak your search pages to promote specific products, influence buyers’ decisions, and increase conversion rate.
Search merchandising beautifies your stores’ search experience, making products more attractive and interesting to visitors. The more searchers find your product uniquely captivating, the higher the temptation to explore more options. Of course, this could mean more sales.
Makes your visitors return for more
Always remember many competitors are struggling for your customer’s attention. So, you want to create a good impression right from their first visit.
Luigi’s Box boasts impressive features like autosuggest, product recommendation, banner images, and no no-page results. These features guarantee your store’s visitors of a personalized shopping experience, increasing the likelihood of coming again.
Remember that over 30 percent of your e-store visitors prefer your search box – another reason to exploit the searchandising strategy.

How does searchandising work?
Searchandising allows you to prioritize business-specific needs over the regular search rules for your e-store search engine.
This powerful tool allows you to customize your business goals and objectives by promoting certain products over others through the search feature.
To help you deliver more refined results, this search solution reports top-performing and underperforming products. This data helps product owners and managers merchandise your search terms, promoting the most exciting products to your visitors.
How does searchandising achieve its results?
Helping customers discover the right products
Searchandising’s primary goal is to help e-commerce sites improve their customers’ product discovery journey and increase revenue through:
Some online shoppers use search terms different from the registered entry in your product catalog. Some search for products with slang, misspelled words, and synonyms.
Searchandising matches keywords entered into the search box with alternative search terms and provides related products – instead of a no-result page.
- Synonyms recommendations
Luigi’s Box AI collects commonly related search terms to help you build a synonyms list.
Assuming a searcher types’ shirt’ but doesn’t get useful results, then modifies it to ‘T-shirt.’ The synonyms recommendation feature suggests these similar keywords to help inform your synonyms list.
- Custom keywords
Custom keyword lists can be effective during holidays, seasonal events, and festivals.
You can create a customized product list for summer holiday shoppers containing sunscreen, hats, swimsuits, or sunglasses. Products like Christmas-themed mugs, shirts, and gift baskets are attractive offers during the Christmas festival.
- Stop words
Instead of receiving chocolate-infused beverages when you type in “chocolate,” the stop words filter the search results to chocolate bars, listing the relevant results.
The stop words tool limits visitors’ search results to the exact item instead of random related keywords.
You can boost certain products on your e-commerce site’s search results or customize where they appear for a chosen keyword. This can satisfy customer demands with relevant products they never knew existed.
Product boosting is suitable for new arrivals, upgraded product versions, or seasonal items they probably never thought of.
Do you have specific products you wish to promote at a particular season?
You can promote an offer by displaying selected products on your store’s homepage near the search bar. This strategy draws buyers’ attention to a product you want them to check out.
This tool provides auto-generated product suggestions while customers type product names into the search box. This lets you control what products, brands, or categories appear in customers’ searches.
Recommending products that your visitors find interesting can help boost conversion on certain offers.
Scanning through the truckload of products in your store can overwhelm e-commerce customers.
Monitor how visitors interact with your e-store and use this information to decide which products to rank higher in the search results.
To guide searchers, you can top-rank products with the highest clicks and impressions or those you wish to sell out quickly.
Make every visitor feel catered to with the personalization option. Luigi’s Box will leverage visitors’ online behavior to discover what each customer seeks and promote related products in search results.
Such a personalized experience can convert about 60% of your visitors to repeat customers.
Optimized no-results pages
Product unavailability is an often-ignored opportunity to promote other products and, in turn, boost customer experience.
Rather than losing customers to a competitor, our technology helps you convert a no-result page into a list of recommended alternative products.
