I’ve been working on a side project, and have algolia set up to handle search on my jekyll site at guitarlessons.org
I was able to hide the first query results using the searchFunction, but now I am thinking about how to better handle this.
Let’s say in the future I have 1000+ posts on the site. My pages will contain a link to every page in the index? Or whatever value I set for the hits per page limit? Even though it is hidden with css, I worry about the site architecture I am presenting to Googlebot.
Is it possible to show zero results on the initial query?
