Approximately one-third of your website visitors will perform a web search, and those who search are twice as likely as non-searchers to convert. Why? There’s not much data on this — onsite search is somewhat neglected — but likely, those who search are intent on finding something ASAP. They are ready buyers or prospective clients who have no time to waste and are actively considering your business.

When it’s easy to search your website, then you will clinch these sales and boost revenue.
