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:
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.
