How Address Search Works
Wouldn’t it be great if every customer typed in their address in the exact way that you need it – standardised, correctly spelt and in the language you need. But just how often do users get addresses wrong, what types of errors do they make and how does it affect the search results in address auto-complete.
How often do they get things wrong?
From our search logs, we find that around 9% of addresses have an error of some sort. These can range from using abbreviations, to putting things in a different order than you expect, to mis-spelling street names.
So how does Fetchify Address Auto-Complete help?
The search algorithm that sits behind Fetchify Address Auto-Complete uses fuzzy logic to see around these errors.
