On the Use of the trackSiteSearch() method

According to the manual “We recommend not to call trackPageView() on the Site Search Result page”. What is the purpose of this recommendation? Is it to avoid double-counting? Does it mean that the trackSiteSearch() method performs two tasks simultaneously:

  1. Send the contents of the search string to the Matomo database, and
  2. Record a track page view.

and, so as not to duplicate the latter do not include trackPageView() on the same page.
