New Features on the Way!

Update on Faceted Search, Indexing Improvements

Thank you to all those who participated in our initial research for supporting faceted search! We are currently finalizing the set of filters we will offer in phase 1, and the infrastructure needed to support the changes. 

In parallel, we are beginning work on improving our content indexing coverage. Part of this will be supporting our existing indexing resiliency, but this will also include two new features:

  • Automated RSS Feed-based indexing for primary web search results, for customers who cannot generate XML sitemaps for their content. This will be separate from and in addition to the RSS feed indexing currently available in the admin center.
  • Indexing content rendered by javascript, for customers using client-side technologies (for example, Angular, React, or Salesforce Community) to display content on their websites.

In next month’s newsletter, we’ll share updates on our results page redesign and user roles enhancements.

Attention Results API Users

Collect Your Site’s Click Data

The results API allows sites to pull search results for display in their own website. This API does not collect search result click data, though. Our separate click tracking API endpoint lets you send in click events to our analytics, which allows you to see click data on your Admin Click Analytics page. Follow these instructions to implement clicks API tracking for your site.
