Search Tool by Pickedthis
Websites can have many types of search tools or systems, it can either internal or external to your website. To give your website searches the most relevant search results and the best performance, we decided to equip our Pickedthis websites with our own internal search system.
How external search tools like Google work is that it parses or reads the pages on your website and tries to understand them in its own way so that it can guess the relevance of these pages when someone makes a search. As for our internal search system in your website, it retrieves information that has already been optimised for search in your website from your database, then apply the search, filter and sorting criteria. Internal searches are also faster as your website does not have to wait in line to be serviced by the external search tool, then come back and display the results.
Our internal search system is highly customisable. It can be as simple as searching through your whole website in places that matter, such as the content of the page, not your logo, images, header or footer. To as complex as searching within products only without the searching your blog, filtering by one or more categories like tops and shoes, sorting by lowest price plus postage, or even having advanced tracking to record multiple information about the searches. These information can be aggregated and analysed to generate reports that helps you understand what was searched, and when, what’s most popularly searched or which countries made these searches.
