What counts as a search request?
When looking at the number of search requests to Cludo, those actually cover a few different types of requests:
- Searches – A traditional search to get a series of results based on a filter or text-based search. A new search request is made whenever the following actions are done:
- A search is executed – the initial search is performed
- Applying a filter – One or more filters are added to a search, causing a new list of results to appear
- Going to another page/loading more results
- Reloading the results page – When using browser actions like refresh or going back and forward
- Autocomplete – When making a new list of suggestions while typing. If autocomplete is enabled (default), there will typically be 3 autocomplete requests for every search request.
- Intelligent 404 – Fetching recommended pages for a 404 page based on the URL.
