Did you know that the default WordPress search engine isn’t really that efficient (and awesome) as the rest of WordPress? Although the search is available as a function in WordPress, it does not search custom post types and taxonomies. This means that if you have a custom post type like “Book” for a book review website, then the default search isn’t going to look there. Thankfully there are a host of awesome plugins that help you implement a powerful search solution in your WordPress site, with varying degrees of specificity. For example, some plugins help you to select search categories, whereas advanced ones enable you to search for content inside PDF files!
Smart Search is an Instant Ajax WooCommerce search plugin that lets your customers search any product on your website.

The plugin could be easily integrated into the default WordPress Search widget in one click. You can manage a lot of settings provided by the plugin to customize its appearance by selecting what fields to display and changing styling options. The main purpose of a smart plugin is to improve the user search experience for any WordPress based website.
