Tracking comma-delimited terms in a custom dimension

Hello! I use Drupal as my main content management system. On each page, I have a series of taxonomy terms to describe the content. I can log those terms to Google Analytics as a custom dimension, but right now it's particularly useful. So, I have a post has terms "Drupal, Strategy, Code" and a second one that is "Drupal, Posting, Keywords." Those come up as separate entries, rather than Drupal being a term, Posting being another and so on.


So my question is this: Is there a way to save the terms to a custom dimension, so that Drupal would be it's own keyword, and I could click it on it to get the number of pages that have that as a keyword?

I don't think that would be feasible.

Rather you can save the comma separated list in custom diemnsions.

And while seeing the reports can add segment to filter the data accordingly.
