Es un plugin fantastico, lo tengo instalado en todas mis webs, y en tiendas de clientes. Este plugin me ayuda a comprender y a saber que es lo que buscan los usuarios, y así conocer si estoy dando un resultado correcto, o hacer contenido para esa búsqueda. Sencillamente es genial, esta super bien. Cuando instalas el plugin te hace un recorrido por todas las funciones del mismo algo mágico. Gracias por hacer un plugin tan bueno.

As stated in the title, 100% recommended to use this plugin, has a nice UX and does nicely what is says it does. Features needed: – table/list of most popular searches (sorted/sortable by different parameters) [Option to Show all by number of searches – this is absolutely essential] – should be able to identify if search was done by user or guest – should identify if user purchased in declared interval after searching [WooCommerce] (and have hooks ready to use for different automations)
