What is a Search Term?

Klevu Smart Search works on a “Search As You Type” logic. In other words, depending on how fast or slow a shopper is typing, a search API may get fired after every character is keyed in. For example, if a shopper was searching for “gold ring”, it is likely that a separate search query was fired for every phrase mentioned below: 

gold r
gold ri
gold rin
gold ring

Even though our servers would have responded to every search query above, we think it is unfair if Klevu were to count every API call submitted above as a separate query. Instead,  we consider only the final phrase (i.e. “gold ring”), as a Search Term.
