3 powerful search apps for your Shopify store

This blog is about different apps that you can offer to your customers for Shopify search. Although Shopify itself has a standard search, it has limited functionality. Therefore, you can extend the search with the apps described below.

We'll show you the features of DooFinder, Searchanise and Boost AI Search. You'll learn how the apps can help you increase customer satisfaction and revenue.

DooFinder

DooFinder provides your users with relevant results for product search in your online store very quickly. The app works with an intelligent algorithm that can be customized in great detail. It learns from the search and click behavior of your users. This way, you can perfectly optimize the search results and adjust them to your target group.

There is a free trial version that allows you to try out all the features first. You can also perform mobile optimization, access various ranking features and set custom business rules.

Other functions of the app

Promote your products already in the search results and use the store search as a sales tool. The Mobile Overlay provides excellent user experience. It is effective, fast and completely responsive. As a result, your customers get relevant results.

You can also present promotions and banners. They can be combined with your campaigns and keywords. Real-time statistics allow you to analyze search queries, which in the long run will help you increase your conversion rate based on clear KPIs.

As mentioned earlier, the app learns from users' click behavior. The NLP technology can understand what they are looking for. DooFinder also includes synonyms or spelling mistakes in the search. The app then suggests products that match the search terms and offers the best search results.

Searchanise is - like DooFinder - also a search solution for your Shopify store. With a simple code snippet you get the app integrated into your store.

Features and functions at Searchanise

The app's features include personalizations related to user activity, filters, error tolerances, analytics, and the ability to make adjustments as needed. The user interface is intuitive, so you can comfortably manage your product range.

Use search options and filters

There are various search options. Search terms are automatically completed, synonyms are used, suggestions are made, and redirects to matching products are created. This enables your customers to conduct a faster, more comprehensive search.

Filters such as color, size or overlay filters and user-defined product facets also help to find the items you are looking for even faster. Especially with large product catalogs or special setups with meta fields or additional information, the Searchanise search comes into its own perfectly.

You can cross-sell or up-sell your products. This means that you can also make sales with weaker products. Furthermore, an analysis of different areas is possible to get a better overview. Check the number of clicks for the products from your assortment or look at an overview of the costs to find optimization potential on this basis.

The 14-day trial version is free of charge. After that, you can choose the version that suits you best. For $16 per month, you get the basic version.

For startups and stores that don't want to spend a large monthly budget on a search app, we recommend Searchanise. With the app you can get a lot out of it for a reasonable price.
