IV. How to include relevant search terms to improve search experience on the storefront?

To improve the search experience on your storefront, you can include relevant search terms in your product descriptions, titles, and tags. This will help customers find what they are looking for more easily.

Relevant search terms are words or phrases that are related to your products or content and help your customers find what they are looking for. 

Unfortunately, themes cannot support relevant search terms out of the box., You will need to use a search app, such as [Search and Discovery], that allows you to add synonyms, keywords, tags, or metafields to your products or content.

Note: If you want to use advanced search features such as autocomplete, you will also need to use search apps like Search and Discovery.
