Keyword metric giving odd results when used in Dashboard widget

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I've added a widget to a dashboard to show search keywords used on a site but I'm getting very weird results. 

The results show keywords like this:
eon
ebc
eab
emb
ens
esk
e
enb

 

But if I run the keyword queries report under Acquisition > SEO > Queries I don't see any results like that. Even if I try filtering the results for any of those words.

 

The widget is set up as a standard table with Keyword as the main dimension, and Users and Avg. Time on Page as the other metrics. Is this some sort of glitch or is something not set right?

Hi,
Acquisition > SEO > Queries data only show if you connect Google Analytics account with Google Search Console.

Please check this article @ https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1308617?hl=en

Hope this helps.

Thanks

I have a similar dashboard setup, using *Keyword* as the dimension. The Google Search Console is linked to and verified against the GA account. I'm getting weird results though:

Any ideas?
