While Magento platform offer various options to classify, sort and present your products, search feature was always provided with basic functionalities.

It is quite common that customers make spelling and typo mistakes when they search products by name or search term is not on their native language. If search results were not what customer expected or there are no results at all, there is good chance that customer will leave your site. Only small number of customers will repeat search with another term after unsuccessful search. Good number of them will leave site with impression that searched product is not available in your store and will not come back.
