I'm Silas, Cludo's Chief Technical Officer. I'm excited to tell you about some of the updates and improvements we've released recently to make your site search the best it can be."

If an end-user on your website opts out of the cookies, we have introduced a setting in our CludoJS configuration that allows you to integrate with Cludo such that we do not track the user session for reporting.

With this development, Cludo can now index data from within shadow DOM elements while crawling asynchronously.
Time zones are now more accurately displayed in your search analytics dashboard.
Page Inventory, a tool that allows you to view and manage your indexed content, is now an Admin-level feature to better ensure the security of your website's data.
Our crawlers can now read and extract data from structured data (as found in a JSON object) on your web pages.
We have optimized the "Test Search Functionality" within MyCludo so that we give more guidance to our users on why their tests are working or not. If your URL is determined to be invalid, the test crawler will now tell you why your URL isn't loading, and you can run additional tests on the same URL without reopening the test modal.
We have completed work on our monitoring efforts, resulting in additional performance metrics now being available.
We have released a new feature, Private Data Masking, that masks private data in your MyCludo analytics that users may accidentally enter in the search function on your site. This feature is especially helpful for finance, government, and higher education websites, and was developed with feedback from current customers!
We have released a suite of updates to the Intents algorithm, taking your Intents to the next level of accuracy. This will make them more helpful for you when developing a content strategy.
We have released new options allowing your search results to be filtered by date. You can now set up multiple types of date filters for results, including by week, month or year. This will be helpful on a time-sensitive resource like "News" or "Blog" where users may want to filter results by a set time period.
We have increased the accuracy of our crawlers, specifically around deleting content. Existing pages/files are now being checked against your site's robots.txt to see whether they should still be part of the index, and existing pages/files that are now redirecting to elsewhere will not remain in the index. This will allow you to have even more accurate content automatically displayed in your search.
We now support middle mouse and control click for logging click data through API Analytics.
If you’re an API user, we just released multiple feature updates that will allow you to view top hits by categories or facet value.
We enhanced our Page Inventory feature! It will now provide a much more detailed overview of your indexed content, allowing you to better control your searchable content.
We have added a bunch of improvements to our Crawlers, helping your search run even better than before.
