Setting Up Search Term Tracking

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

 

Could someone please assist in helping us setup search term tracking? The conventional query parameters and explanation found here for filters doesn't seem to be working (http://www.lunametrics.com/blog/2015/02/24/enable-site-search-reporting-google-analytics/).

 

The typical string looks like below:

https://www.xxx.com/xx/en/search.html#/f_text=testing&limit=10&offset=0

 

Thanks in advance!

you need an actual querystring, with a ? separating the parameters from the URL

 

With GTM (or a bit of code) you can capture whatever is behind the hash sign and store it in a virtual URL that can be used to track internal search.
