Hack / Exploit attempt? Someone searching "marquee h1 xss h1 marquee meta http" on my site

Hi folks

A Shopify notification informing me that "some of your visitors can't find what they're looking for" (on our site https://doublefinebook.com), lists the following search terms:

xss

marquee h1 xss h1 marquee meta http

marquee h1 xss by xss h1 marquee

I don't understand these terms, but a web search for them returns articles concerning "cross-site scripting attacks".

Is this a form of hacking / exploit attempt and should I take action to protect against it?

Thanks in advance,

Stace

It seems like the guy was trying to find XSS(Cross site scripting). He was just trying to execute javascript in your store.Don't be afraid.I believe shopify has protection against it.
