The top report in the Overview tab is Tiles, which captures eight metrics: All Sessions, Search Sessions, Clicks, Cases Logged, Total Searches, Searches with Results, Searches with No Result, and Unique Searches. Each metric has its own tile where you can view approximate numbers, such as Search Sessions: 19K and Clicks: 7K. On hovering over a tile, the exact numbers appear, such as Search Sessions: 19542 and Clicks 7321.
A session is a group of interactions between a user and your website, community, or another platform that takes place during a specified period. Sessions give an exact estimate of the number of times users visited your website and for an activity or transaction.
All Sessions shows the entire number of such interactions. It is used as a measure of the amount of traffic a website gets.
You can determine the time frame of a user session. For example, 30 minutes or 1 hour. If a visitor stops doing any activity on your website for longer than your time frame, then that session ends.
The sum of sessions in which at least one search was performed.
The total number of results opened across all your search results pages in all sessions. It helps you to accurately determine the effectiveness of site search and the resources in your data repository. It can happen that a user makes multiple clicks on a search results page.
The number of sessions with at least one click are mentioned just under total clicks in Successful Sessions.
The total number of cases created on the support page where a search client is installed. It can happen that a user ends up logging more than one case in a session.
The total number of times search was used on your website or community. It is a measure of total search volume on a search client.
Each facet selection or deselection, navigation to a new results page, reloading of the search results page, advanced search, or changing search settings in preferences counts as a separate search.
Searches with Result
Searches with results refer to the list that is created in response to a search query. These are the searches for which at least one result is produced.
Searches with No Results
Searches for which no result is produced. A search can be no-result for multiple reasons:
- Documents with the search keywords do not exist in your data repositories.
- The user does not have the permission to see documents.
- Your search client is not connected with the content source where the documents are stored.
The total number of times your website or community search was used, excluding facet selection or deselection. It doesn't count auto suggestion. But navigation to a new results page, reloading of the search results page, advanced search, or changing search settings in preferences counts as a separate search.
