Search Spell-Correction

Search Spell-Correction will correct any misspelling, mistyping or misunderstanding while searching product in your online store.

Up to 20% of all product search queries are misspelled, causing your online shoppers to leave because of nil or weak product search results. Search Spell-Correction will correct any misspelling, mistyping or misunderstanding while searching product in your online store including the most vague product search terms.

Online Stores that fail to correct product search misspellings, lose customers

While searching a product in online shop, customers frequently do not know exact spelling of a product. Just a single missing character or an extraneous character transposed will produce nil or weak results, as a standard Magento Search Module will not find right product, prompting the shopper to leave your online store believing that you do not have what they are looking for.

Just fancy up to 20% product search queries in online stores have misspellings. All those shoppers do not find they’re looking for. Our extension allows to solve this problem and increase conversion of customers who are searching a product up to 15%.
How does this extension work?

Supposably a customer searches for a laptop “Dell Inspiron”. He types this search phrase into a search box of the online store. He makes just a minor misspelling - “Dell Insperon”. Standard Magento Search will produce nil search result, but our smart extension will suggest to the customer that probably he meant “Dell Inspiron”. If a shopper agrees and clicks to this query, he receives a list of search results with a list of “Dell Inspiron” laptops from the database of products of your online shop! The customer finds the product he needs and buys it in your store!

At the moment all prominent online stores use similar functions. For example, Amazon does this in the following way.

  •     Spell Correction of search queries in your online store
