  • suggestion displayed are not the categories, this are search terms which are used to search with count (how many times customers have searched for that terms)

as per your response in comment- You can manage Search terms in admin from -

Catalog -> Search terms

Or if you don't want to display search term suggestion , you can disable it from admin at below path-

  1. Go to System -> Configuration
  2. Select catalog beneath Catalog tab from left navigation tab
  3. Now select Catalog Search
  4. And set Show Autocomplete Results Count to NO

Update : To remove search suggestion you have to change in below file-


if this file is not there in your theme , then copy it from base/default or rwd/default theme to the given path

then in form.mini.phtml file comment/delete this code

<div id="search_autocomplete" class="search-autocomplete"></div>

and this script code

searchForm.initAutocomplete('<?php echo $catalogSearchHelper->getSuggestUrl() ?>', 'search_autocomplete');
