Frontend API | Add redirects for search phrase suggestions

Redirects can be triggered when a user enters a specific search term on your website. With Tweakwise’s autocomplete feature, your users get suggestions for search phrases while they’re typing. Sometimes there is a suggested search phrase that would result in a redirect. However, previously you would first have to do a navigation search or products request to know if there was a redirect for the chosen search phrase.

With the addition of adding redirects directly in the response for search phrase suggestions, we’ve removed the need for a separate call. This means your users can get redirected immediately instead of having to wait for an extra request, speeding up the user experience.
