6 Ways to Improve Ecommerce Site Search

Google Site Search
Site search is arguably the most important area when it comes to user experience. B2B items, especially, are often complex; buyers don’t have time to hunt for products. In this post, I’ll offer a few practical action steps for improving site search on your ecommerce site — B2B and B2C. There are three options for buyers to find products on an ecommerce site. Keyword search occurs when a buyer uses the search bar to find products. Keywords can be anything, from terms relating to products or categories to specific part numbers — UPC, MPN, EAN, internal, competitive, and industry-specific. Category browsing occurs when users select a category and drill down to find the items they are looking for in sub-categories. Faceted search is when users refine their search by

At the 2017 Chrome Web Summit Conference, Google introduced the world to the Chrome User Experience Report (CrUX) – a database constructed from multiple samples pulled from real Chrome users’ web browsing experiences. According to Google, the goal was to “capture the full range of external factors that shape and contribute to the final user experience.” A few short months later, Google updated their PageSpeed Insights tool to score two separate categories: “speed” and “optimization.” The familiar PageSpeed Insights’ grade based on technical issues and Google’s recommended fixes was moved to the Optimization section, while the newly-introduced Page Speed section started labeling webpages as ‘fast,’ ‘average,’ or ‘slow’ based on the median value of one’s Firs

Its closest competitor, iOS, doesn’t come close with a 20.7% share. Google issues monthly security updates to keep the vast majority of the world’s cell phone users safe. If you’re using one of Google’s Pixel phones, you get those updates right away. No problem. If you’re using any other Android phone, receiving Google’s security patches is a hit or miss affair.

Prior Art Archive aims to improve patent process

Imagine you have invented a device that could save millions of lives around the world. But instead of profiting from the invention yourself, you decide to share the design online, to allow others to make their own version at low cost. Two years later, a company applies for a patent on your invention. Once the application is granted, the company not only begins profiting from your device, but launches a lawsuit against you, the inventor, for infringing their patent. This is the danger faced by researchers and developers alike, because the limits of existing content repositories means it is often a struggle for patent examiners to find what they call prior art — evidence that an invention is already known — relating to an application. That means that some applications that should be rejec

Every day, thousands of searches for retail businesses take place on the internet, with the majority of them occurring on Google. And if a retailer’s stores aren’t on the first page of search results in the paid, organic and Google Maps sections, users are far less likely to find any of those locations when searching for stores. Among mobile device users, 82 percent have reported trying a "near me" search on their devices, a number that rises 10 points among Millennials, according to recent research from Uberall, a San Francisco-based location marketing solution provider. These findings suggest that a growing number of consumers are placing proximity as their top priority, and brand loyalty below it. This is an especially big deal for grocers: When survey respondents were asked what t

By now, most people know this infamous digital marketing statistic: 71% (and up to 92%) of all search engine traffic and clicks occur only on the first page of Google. Backlinks and referring domains remain a critical factor for improving a website's link authority and Google search results. In fact, since 2015, research from Moz reveals that domain-level link features remain the most influential factor in improving website credibility and authority. With that said, backlinking can become a tedious and ineffective process when companies don't know what they're doing.

Site users and search engines don’t take website security lightly which is probably why you’ve likely heard of added security measures like HTTPS. But a lesser-known security layer called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) is also available and can help protect your site and your search engine optimization (SEO) as well.  Let’s walk through what HSTS is and how it works. HSTS HSTS is a response header that informs the browser it can only connect to a certain website using HTTPS.  HSTS increases both the speed and security of HTTPS websites.  To fully understand what HSTS does, you need a little working knowledge of HTTPS. HTTPS HTTPS (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure) is a secure version of HTTP.  When a user connects to a site using HTTPS, the websit
