Is Google Analytics' Site Search Data still be useful when the search method is POST REQUEST

Hi, 

 Our website's  internal search is the ff:

1. Our search is a POST request

2. Our search behavior is not a page visit, but just a user event.

 

Our developer was able to do a  GA site search integration so i'm seeing figures for search refinement, goal conversion, % of sessions with search and without search. 

 

I just wanted to ask if the metrics shown in GA's search is still relevant even if our search is a post request? 

 

I'm a newbie! thanks for helping out!!

Hi Patricia,
It really shouldn't matter. I assume that your developer adds a parameter to the URL that's passed in the GA hit back to Google (creative solution by the way!) so no, as long as it's done correctly, it shouldn't matter at all. However, without seeing the implementation, it is difficult to confirm that.
