Shopify search and discovery - include only products in search and complementary products

In today's competitive eCommerce landscape, it's essential to provide an optimized shopping experience for your customers. One way to achieve this is by customizing your store's search and discovery app. In this blog post, we will explore two popular customizations: excluding pages and blogs from search results, and adding complementary products.

Excluding Pages and Blogs from Search Results

Often, store owners want to display only products in the search results, excluding pages and blogs. To do this, navigate to the settings of your search and discovery app, where you can filter the search results according to your preference. Choose the desired content types, such as pages or predictive search, to refine the results displayed to your customers.

Adding Complementary Products

Another useful customization is the addition of complementary products. This feature allows customers to see related products that can be purchased together, increasing the chances of upselling. To add complementary products, go to the recommendations section in the app settings. You can search for specific products and add them as complementary items, which will then be displayed on the product page.

For a faster way to add complementary products, you can use the bulk editor. Simply go to the products section of your store and select 'bulk edit products.' This allows you to quickly assign complementary items to multiple products at once.


Customizing your search and discovery app is an effective way to improve the shopping experience for your customers. By excluding non-product content from search results and showcasing complementary products, you can create a more streamlined and personalized browsing experience, ultimately driving higher conversions and sales.
