Like on a product search, we all hate landing on that dreaded page "Your search did not match any products". Just a blank page with nothing to help you find what you are looking for.
Now you can create a full unique experience for them by fully customizing what the customer sees when their blog search doesn't return results.
What to do:
Simply create a custom layout with all the widgets and messaging that you want the customer to see.
👍 Important: Don't forget to add in any necessary menu widget(s). These help when a user is drilling down through different categories or posts.
Once you are ready you can navigate to Appearance >> Layout Settings. Scroll down and you will see the dropdown "Blog post no search results" that allows you to pick your custom layout.
Have a great day! 🎉
