An effective on-site search implementation provides unique insight into your visitors. By observing what visitors are searching for you can make educated decisions about areas of improvement when it comes to your content.
SearchWP’s Metrics extension collects comprehensive data for on-site search, and provides you with actionable advice about refinements you can make to your content as time goes on.
SearchWP’s Metrics extension provides actionable insights into search traffic on your site.
What are visitors searching for?
What are visitors finding when they search?
How often are visitors searching?
What searches are (incorrectly) yielding no results and frustrating visitors?
Do visitors look beyond page 1 of our search results?
Metrics answers questions like these and at the same time provides actionable insights based on the data that’s collected.
How Metrics compares to SearchWP’s statistics
SearchWP itself includes statistics that give an overview of on-site search at various time frames. This data is valuable, and Metrics expands on that. With Metrics you can:
Customize the date range
Actionable insights based on data collected
Export data to CSV
Limit the data to any number of search queries
Display multiple engines at once for direct comparison
View additional computed data per engine (e.g. total results viewed)
Track conversions (clicked search results) for all searches
