Customers on your website may be searching for a product line that you do not carry. In such a scenario, you can suggest alternative searches that would display the available products. GroupBy allows you to drive such searches by customer’s behavior, rather than having them curated by merchandisers.
Similar Queries API helps find search queries similar to the customer’s search query. It not only considers how similar the queries look but also analyzes the meaning of the words in the query to find the best possible matches.
You can provide this experience on a null result landing page and power it by searches that return products.

As a default, we suggest using the
rank field to classify the quality of the suggestions. In the example above, “ribeyes” is a better suggestion than “steak”, which is a better suggestion than “bison steak”, and so on.
Alternatively, you can fine-tune our suggestions based on
total searches, sequential searches, support, and conversion rate:
total searches tells how many times the suggested query was searched for
sequential searches tells how many times a search happened on the original query, followed by a search on the suggested query
support is a ratio between the sequential and total searches
conversion rate tells how often the search query resulted in a purchase (conversion)
