Our goal is to help you make subtle search-related refinements that set your store apart from the competition and increase your sales.

What’s new in FiboSearch v1.21.0

FiboSearch v1.21.0 brings a bunch of fixes and additions to FiboSearch. Most important fixes are database- and indexer-related. We also integrated FiboSearch with popular plugins – Product GTIN (EAN, UPC, ISBN) for WooCommerce and EAN for WooCommerce. Overall, it is a rich list of improvements to our plugin in a few key areas.

Should I go Pro? – FiboSearch Free vs Pro

Throughout this article we want to get into the nuts and bolts about the main similarities and differences, explain them and tell you what you should expect from using either version. We also want to strongly underline the fact that FiboSearch Free is a perfectly functioning plugin in its own right, a workhorse to help you run your business smoothly.

FiboSearch and WordPress Block Editor

For many of you who started using WordPress with v5.0 (or: after 2018), the Block Editor (also called Gutenberg) is the WordPress editor. However, since WordPress’ introduction in 2003, there were many tools for content creation in the past that are now left out. In this article we want to focus on the future of WordPress, namely using Full Site Editing to your advantage. We’re also proud to announce our own, custom created blocks that allow you to add the FiboSearch search bar wherever you need it.

The best search UX you can offer – learn how to design your store around the search bar and turn visitors into customers

Using search or navigation are two main product finding strategies found in modern e-commerces. Of course, with FiboSearch we take great pride in our search engine. Thus, we want to show you how to use search as the main strategy in your store. Additionally, we will meticulously study navigation as it’s the most popular alternative.

Voice search

Voice search, also called voice-enabled, allows the user to use a voice command to search the Internet, a website, or an app – this quote from Wikipedia should give us a general idea of how the voice may be used for any search-related tasks. With the advent of mobile devices and stationary – all powerful and capable of tapping into AI-aided potential to recognize user voice queries – it’s important to implement such features into modern e-commerces. Here’s our take on this issue.

What’s new in FiboSearch v1.20.0

With this update, we’re bringing a bunch of fixes and smaller additions to FiboSearch. All in all it creates a rich list of improvements to our plugin in a few key areas.

Parallel indexing

A properly built index is one of the key factors for a search engine to perform fast and reliably. We would like to introduce an improved indexing methodology, which we’re adopting with the v1.19.0 version of FiboSearch. Here comes parallel indexing!

What’s new in FiboSearch v1.19.0

This update brings many long-awaited changes and improvements to our plugin. We’ve also incorporated some previously beta or experimental features into the core of FiboSearch. Now they’re ready to be used directly from your WP dashboard and without the need for code (almost exclusively). 

FiboSearch ❤ Elementor

Elementor is the most popular builder for WordPress – period. And we, at FiboSearch, absolutely love to integrate with other amazing plugins. That is why we challenged ourselves to actually build something and share it with you. The effect is a minimalistic header with all the bells and whistles you might expect – and more!

Pirx – a bean-shaped search bar design you’ll love

Sometimes “the best looking” feature just isn’t good enough for your shop. That’s why we’ve taken up the challenge and designed a brand new design of FiboSearch search bar. We want it to look the exact opposite to our straight and angular Solaris, our default bar – to give it a soft, curvy and rounded feel that blends smoothly into the front of the store. We called it Pirx.

Darkened background

It’s considered a best practice to add some visual distinction to the auto plate suggestions, according to UX gurus at Baymard Institute. Help your customers navigate your store — here’s how to dim the background and focus their attention on autosuggestions.

Lack of queries insight really hurts your sales

One of the greatest things about e-commerce is that, from an owner’s point of view, you can know exactly what your customers search for. There are plenty of custom analytical and diagnostic tools, accompanied by tons of research and data. But what happens when your clients don’t know the exact model of the item they want or simply… make a typo?
