It's simple really. Research indicates that 60% of customers head straight to the search bar when navigating a website, yet a staggering 80% abandon their search due to subpar experiences. Additionally, 72% of websites fall short of meeting search expectations. Notably, 52% of shoppers abandon their carts if they cannot locate a specific item; however, those who utilize the search function are 2-3 times more likely to complete a purchase.
