Modern digital activities are often performed in a rush, so they lead to misspellings and typos. For example, your store visitors may be in a hurry or busy, which leads to typing search queries inaccurately. As a result, your website does not display search results they’ve been looking for. Thus, when looking for something on the run, potential clients will be dissatisfied with your online storefront. To prevent this problem, we recommend you to pay attention to the Search Spell-Correction extension by Mirasvit. The module is available for Magento 2 and 1, so it is an excellent way to help your shoppers find what they came for on both platforms. The Search Spell Correction extension will correct all misspellings and typos during the search, increasing sales and the number of returning customers on your ecommerce site.
To deliver your customers highly relevant search results, Search Spell Correction detects typos in a split second. The Magento 2 module provides shoppers with a notification about the typo/misspelling, an alternative search query, and search results for that query.
Due to the fallback search feature, your store visitors will never see empty results again. Mirasvit Search Spell Correction for Magento 2 and 1 returns results for all queries even when the native Magento search engine suggests no results. The extension analyzes each search query and performs the search on the basis of the most suitable words, eliminating dubious ones from the algorithm.
As a Magento admin, you get the most straightforward backend interface. The extension can be configured in just two steps within a couple of seconds. Let’s see how it works.
