Right now when you first enter the page, you enter a keyword (enter yes) and it gives you data. great

But if you enter a different word after entering the first one, it wont load anything without having to refresh the whole webpage.

Is there a way to make it seamless?

    You are getting this error:

    DataTables warning: table id=example - Cannot reinitialise DataTable. For more information about this error, please see http://datatables.net/tn/3

    Did you look at the troubleshooting steps in the link provided?

    If you want to re-initialize the Datatable then use destroy as shown in the technote.

    An alternative to destroying the Datatable is to use $.fn.dataTable.isDataTable() to see if the Datatable exists. If not initialize it like you are now. If it does exist then use ajax.url().load() to load data from the change URL.
