Search Tags

A step-by-step guide with explanations detailing where to find and implement custom search tags within your freewebstore control panel.

Custom search tags allow you to help the search bar on your store work a little better. It allows you to enter different terms that relate to the products that your customers may be looking for.

The search bar on your store currently returns products that match your product names exactly. For example, a customer may search for the term 'phone', but nothing on your store matches this term because all of your 'phone' products are named 'mobile' products. By using the search tags feature, you can add the term 'phone' to your 'mobile' products so the next time your customers search for 'phones' your 'mobile' products are returned.

By using this feature effectively, you could improve your conversion rate by up to 27%.
