On Analytics linked to my AdWords previously when I went to Site Search>Search Terms I could see a list of terms used to access my site. These have suddenly disappeared and replaced by this message There is no data for this view. What's going on?

Hi Graham,

 

I think here you are not referring to the Adwords search terms but the search terms which users used on your website to search for some product or service. Let me know if that's not the case here.

 

If this is the case I mentioned above, I would suggest you to follow Analytics forum for more insights. This is the link: http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!forum/analytics

Hi Graham, in short, Google recently went completely HTTPS on search meaning that the organic search term data is no longer available in Analytics.  This is actually not a new and sudden change - it's been progressing for over a year as the introduction of HTTPS spread, it's just recently that the final stages completed.

 

Search term data is still (currently) available in AdWords under Search Details, and/or via the Organic vs Paid Dimensions report in AdWords.
