Should You Have A Search Option?
However, look at the design from the eyes of the end user. That person sitting at home on the computer trying to find out an answer to a question or needs to information quickly on a cell phone or mobile device. When they come to your site, are they looking for the search option and did not really notice that you only have a few pages of content? That’s an interesting concept.
If you apply the rule that you have about 15 – 20 seconds to capture the attention of that potential client, then maybe, “Yes” your website should have a search option.
I know that this post may give a conflicting answer to the question, but it does provide something for more discussion on the topic.
