Dynamic Search Ads referrer

I need to know how the referrer will look when using dynamic search ads. Will it contain the normal q-parameter with the search word typed in by the visitor?

Hi Peter B,


Yes, the q parameter and value will be available in the referrer data. No, it's not reliable. Since the advent of secure search at Google, most of the visits will show q=not provided, or the query will encrypted or the value will be left out all together.


Your best bet for analysis is the search term report.


Best of Luck!
