What is considered a billable search query?

A search query will only be billed if Findologic offers the visitor to your shop added value. This means specifically:


  • A search query answered
  • Clicking a product suggested by Smart Suggest (not the suggestion itself!)
  • Clicking a filter in the search or navigation
  • Clicking a paginator
  • Each final selection of the shopping guide
  • When navigating with Instant Product Listing: Each time a category is clicked, if Findologic returns a product listing afterwards


In classic navigation, it should be noted that the initial display of the filters (after selecting a menu item) is not counted as a search query.

If you have questions about bots, please read the FAQ article: How can I avoid Google crawling all search results and causing an unnecessary number of queries?
