How to run a test search

The Test search feature in MyCludo allows you to test the search and review result rankings on an engine without using the engine in an implementation. This makes it useful for testing recently applied changes, such as crawler updates or tools that were added for certain terms. With the test search, you can also read the score of a result, ultimately determining the order of results, which is especially useful to keep an eye on when testing new boostings.

  1. In the top bar, click the Test search button.
  2. Select the desired engine in the drop-down menu in the upper right corner.
  3. Type the search term to test in the input field.
  4. Hit Enter or click the Magnifying glass icon to execute the search.
  5. Review the ranked results, paying attention to the score of each result.
