@EBernhardson Can you give some context for this task? Thanks!

In the search satisfaction schema we don't only track your first click from the result page to an article, we also track pages you visit after that (so called "deep" clicks). This was something that we started collecting at some point because it might be useful, but it hasn't turned out to be useful for much of anything.

Basically it means we track currently track the following, until your search session expires

Search -> California -> San Francisco -> Northern California -> ...

After this change we will only collect

Search -> California

This was discussed with @mpopov and he said it's fine to remove it. Not super high priority at the minute.
