Self-learning search

The results being served by Klevu are also based on the products that users have interacted with previously, as well their purchasing behaviour from search. Klevu then uses this data as part of the merchandising algorithm


Rich autocomplete

Klevu automatically completes the search query by providing rich, insightful and intuitive suggestions. Autocomplete starts from the 1st character! 


Grid view layout

Klevu provides the ready-made alternative to autocomplete layout. It is possible to show instant results with navigation panel in the quick search. 


Fully customisable

Klevu provides full control and flexibility to the look and feel of search results. Based on the open CSS principle, search results can be customized to any extent desired. 


Error tolerance

An enhanced keyword search index ensures that shoppers are always connected to the right products. 



Identifies and manages to stop words (i.e. and, to, for…) to get to the heart of the search. 



Understands what your shoppers mean even if they use verbs and adjectives in different grammatical forms. 


Dynamic filters

Automatically creates all relevant filters in the search results. Filters allow shoppers to explore results in great detail. 


Trending searches

Klevu prompts consumers with words from popular and recent searches, creating interaction with shoppers, and accelerating the buying process. 


Synonym dictionary

You can train the Klevu search robot for the unique elements related to your store by providing lists of keywords specific to your store. Klevu automatically identifies these words and delivers the best results. 


URL redirect

URL redirect allows you to direct shoppers to a certain page on specific keywords. For example, direct shoppers to a special promotion page when the keyword “holiday” is searched. 


Product promotions

Manual boosting of product ranking ensures that the products you want to promote appear at the top of the search results when relevant. Also, it allows to create promotion rules to prioritize products under specific categories and/or with specific attribute values.


Keyword-based promotion

It allows to input the query they would like to merchandise and then drag and drop the products they’d like to appear for the term, in their preferred option.


Banner Ads

Banner Ad is used for promotions in quick search (search-as-you-type) and on search results page. With this feature, you can associate banners with specific keywords and show them when these keywords are searched.



Klevu analytics help create razor sharp SEO and promotional campaigns. Concrete data to help increase conversion rates. You’ll have complete visibility of the path from search to purchase.
