Search bar problem

31 0 2


When I type products into the search bar on my site, it brings up a list of my key words as well as the products. Can anybody tell me why this is happening & what I can do to fix it?

For example if you type in 'chair' or 'cushion cover' into my search bar you'll see what I mean. I'm not entirely sure where these are being pulled from either

Many Thanks

Hello @Takhara ,
It is searching in all area of website. See below article.

If you want only to search products then please add one line of code in your search form code

<input type="hidden" name="type" value="product">

Hi @Takhara

Hyde here from Shopify.

What I suspect has happened is that you've added several tags to your products. As a result, if you search for a product using a corresponding tag, it might just throw up all the other associated tags in the collection. This is why if I follow your suggestion and type "cushion cover" into the search function all these associated tags are being thrown up:



That said I'd like to know what theme it is you're using. Is it a free Shopify theme or a third-party theme? Have you made any edits to the code of your theme? Do you have any apps operating on your collection pages at all?

Looking forward to hearing from you!

All the best, Hyde.

Hi @Takhara 

Issues with search can be frustrating and need to be treated with urgency, as search issues can hugely affect your sales.

Following @Hyde instructions can help you understand where the issue is coming from, so you can fix it and avoid it causing future problems in your store.

I will recommend installing a smart search and filter app. You can check this store to see how a search and filter app works and how it can improve a store user experience.

Search and Filter Apps offer features like predictive search with autocomplete, relevant suggestions, and matching products, search in multi-languages. It gives you more insight into your customer behaviors and how people search your store and so much more.
