OK, so we already know your website has an awesome navigation structure. After all, you totally read and followed all the action points in the Site Navigation Checklist from The Best Damn Web Marketing Checklist, Period!, right? 😉
Even if you do have the world’s best site navigation, though, you still need an internal site search function just in case a visitor still can’t find what they are looking for.
Having an effective site search feature gives visitors a way to get to very specific information quickly without having to jump through multiple levels and options go in your primary navigation. It allows them to find what they want without forcing them into a multi-click navigational maze, searching for something they don’t know how to find.
But it takes more than just slapping a search box on your website. You need to make sure it is visible and usable. This checklist will help ensure that your internal site search is as awesome as your site navigation.
