🔎 Search Analytics Page (Scale Plan and above)

We've launched a new search analytics feature that provides insights into the performance of search engines over time. It allows tracking and analyzing key metrics such as average response speed, total number of searches, success rate, and error rate.

This feature is available for Scale plans and higher.
