Search bar on homepage and it's position

Hi there,

I am building a local website that will list businesses, events and jobs. My town is not huge so there will not be thousands of listings.

I have added a search bar to the header of my website and also added a section on the homepage that features a search bar as well as category boxes like this:

However, I am now wondering if I actually need the second search on the homage and if users generally prefer to browse for items.

Do you think I should remove the search bar or keep it in? If I should keep it, should it stay above the categories or would it be better under the categories?

Any suggestions would be great.


I’ve not seen more than one search bar on websites. You could do a fixed search bar at the top, so it’s always there for when users need it.
