Found an interesting issue regarding EPi Find statistics, was hoping someone could shed some light on.
When performing a search the result a user selects is tracked. On searches, autoboost is used to promote the most clicked pages up in the results, this is all working as expected.
Problem I am seeing is that if the "EPiServer Find Content Indexing Job" is run, the hit count/autoboost no longer has any effect on the results, even more interesting is that if a previously popular result is clicked just once then full hit count/autoboost comes back into play on future searches.
I am aware that the index job isn't recommended to be run often etc but am still curious about the problem it is causing.
Using Find 13.0.4
Opened a support case for this and the behaviour is by design"Statistics values are saved in 2 places, one in index_stat and one in document. When you make a click-through value in index_stat is automatically updated via document. And then the hits return in the right order."
