Tracking events

Abstract

Introduces the Sitecore Search Events API.

As visitors interact with your page by clicking on widgets, logging in, upvoting articles, and so on, you must track those interactions and send them to Sitecore Search using the Events API.

Sitecore Search uses events for generating analytic dashboards and driving personalization. If you track events thoroughly and accurately, you get more useful site analytics, and your site visitors get more personalized content.

To track visitor interactions, you must correctly construct the associated event object, call the Events API, and send the object using the API.
