Website Search

Having a website navigation that is easy to use and understand is essential for any website. Now you can give your visitors the ability to find the information or products they are looking for faster and easier. Just add the Search element to your website and let your visitors search with a simple keyword.

Note: The website search element is only available for JimdoBusiness subscribers. If you are using a different Jimdo package, we'd recommend using an external search tool. For more information click here.

Adding the search element

To add the search element follow these steps: 

  1. Go to Add Element> More Elements and Add-ons> Search
  2. Then drag the search element box to your preferred website location.

We recommend adding the search element in the footer/sidebar. This way you only add the element once. Unless of course you want the search tool in one specific page(s).


Good to know: your Jimdo website is indexed as soon as you add the search element. If you later decide to make changes to your website, indexing is automatically updated.

Configuration settings

You can configure your search box with the following settings: 

  1. Determine the width and position of the search box
  2. Modifiable placeholder text
  3. Search option settings for the following:
