WHY DO I NEED ANSWERS?
Answer Customers’ Questions.
Deliver a cutting-edge search experience on your website that understands natural language questions, provides direct answers (not blue links), and paves the path from search to conversion.
Use the Yext Answers Site Search plugin to power a variety of onsite search experiences — from job finders to store locators, or even full site search — on your WordPress site.
The Yext Answers Site Search plugin is an out-of-the-box solution that minimizes the need for IT to manage and optimize an effective search experience. Once you’ve downloaded the plugin, all you need to do is use the provided shortcodes for the Answers search bar and search results page.
Retain Traffic and Boost Conversion.
When your website answers your customers’ questions, they’re more likely to stay on your site, instead of bouncing to a search engine or a competitor.
And, customizable CTAs pave the path from search to conversion: early adopters have seen Yext Answers driving a 36% higher website conversion rate than legacy keyword-based search providers.
Reduce Support Costs.
When your website can answer more customers’ questions, fewer of them will turn to your call center or live chat — saving you valuable resources.
Gain New Customer Insights.
If you could see every question a customer asked on your website, would you adjust your content to better suit their needs? With insights from Yext Answers, you can learn what matters to your customers and give them more of what they’re looking for.
