Is there a recommended method to provide the InstantSearch widget with a pre-collected set of initital results, rather than by default hitting the Algolia index?
My search is on the home page of my website. Like most websites, a good proportion of views on the default screen will “bounce”, ie the user immediately realises they’re in the wrong place and leaves. I don’t really want to pay for those searches, PLUS the default initial set of results needs to be the same for all users anyway, so can be part of the build.
I can see how to set the initial search state, but the code still hits the server as soon as the page loads.
Thanks for your help.
