In Magento, if you are using the preserve theme layout option for the search landing page then please follow the additional two steps to display the banner there.

Preserved Theme Layout on Magento has been discontinued from Oct 10, 2022. If you use this feature today, it will continue to work, however, support will be limited. If you wish to retain/preserve your theme for search results page and category pages, please explore Klevu implementation using Template JS or SDK to make the most out of Klevu Discovery Suite.

1. Add the following div element where you want to show the banner ads on the page:

<div id="klevuBannerAdLanding" class="kuBannerAd"></div>

You may have to update the CSS according to your site's structure.

2. Add the following script at the end of only the landing page, i.e., just above the closing (</body>) tag ():

<script type="text/javascript">
var klevu_bannerTrials = 0;
var klevu_bannersTimer = setInterval(function () {
if( typeof klevu_banner !== 'undefined' && typeof klevu_commons !== 'undefined' ){
klevu_commons.showBannerAdForGivenTerm(<search-term> , 'klp' );
clearInterval(klevu_bannersTimer);
}
if (klevu_bannerTrials >= 10) {
clearInterval(klevu_bannersTimer);
}
klevu_bannerTrials++;
}, 500);
</script>

Please note, you need to replace <search-term> with the actual searched term.

In SFCC, the Search Results Page is always a preserved theme layout. Due to this, the Search Results Landing Page(SRLP) banner from KMC never gets rendered on the storefront. If you're an SFCC customer and wish to render banner from KMC, then you can implement it using APIs.
