No. Site search algorithms compare the spelling of a keyword entered by your customers, with content available within your product database. searchHub goes a step further, not only clustering all variations of keywords, but picking the keyword variation that brings the greatest performance increase to your shop.

Yes. searchHub’s data-driven approach clusters all keyword variations behind the best performing representation of a cluster. We call this a MasterQuery. The B2B space is well-known for its myriad product specifications and variations. The resulting keyword longtail is quite significant. Longtail keyword variations are where searchHub’s data-driven approach brings the greatest possible shop performance increases.

searchHub is not a search engine. We use data to identify the highest performing keywords within your shop. We then combine all variations of these keywords into query clusters when they represent the same user intent. These clusters are filled with things like spelling mistakes, orthographic or phonetic mismatches or synonyms, and grouped under one common, best performing MasterQuery. searchHub then sends this MasterQuery to your site search engine. As a result, your site search has less heavy lifting to do, is able to deliver results faster, and you are more easily able to optimize bespoke landing pages for your highest performing keywords, as you no longer need to account for all keyword variations.

searchHub pricing is based on the overall uplift it brings to your shop. Cost is calculated based on verifiable uplift potential of using searchHub.
