Magento platform is just outstanding; it is true! But, let’s have a look at the search performance of the platform and the default Magento search doesn’t stand up to that quality at all. Very often, when customers come to the website for the specific product they do not spend time browsing through all of the products, they simply use search on your your website. In this case, low quality search can become a great disadvantage for you.
For example, if I am looking for Samsung phone on on your site, with default Magento search it displays all phone options with my model somewhere in the middle, I might not spend hours scrolling through.To be short, it means, that If i am searching the Samsung phone, it means i know what exactly i am looking for.
Low quality search leads to losing client and accordingly decreasing sales. Therefore, quality search is exceptionally important!
