Introduction

You can learn what your customers are looking for by examining the search terms they use to find products in your store. If enough people are looking for a product that you don’t have, perhaps it’s time to add it to your catalog. Meanwhile, rather than have them leave them empty handed, why not redirect them to another product in your catalog? We will go through some ways that will help your customers find what they are searching for.

To see what your customers are searching for in your store:

From your admin’s dashboard go to Reports > Search Terms
