There is a companion application from Google Analytics called Web Master Tools if you are using that then you can incorporate the Search console in to your analytics and one of the reports is Queries which would give you the requested information.

Hi,

 

Great advice @Brian B


One more thing worth mentioning: If you integrate these two applications (Google Analytics and Search Console), you will probably still see (not provided) queries in your Acquisition -> Search console -> Queries report. This is something that you have no control over.

 

Google has been hiding the organic keyword referral data since October 2011 by encrypting its organic search data. This has been done in the name of protecting user privacy.

 

Hope this helps.

Taavi

Thanks @Taavi Kalvi this is so weird google is encrypting this info while on analytics you can clearly see the keywords when they are related to the adwords campaign so where is the "...the name of protecting user privacy."

Thanks

In Google Analytics you can enable the search console in the Property Admin section under Property Settings the last option says Search Console, in this area you would add your webmaster information. But you need to get your free web master account and have it operational before you can enable this option.

My personal opion is that if you pay for the service then the privacy issue becomes less of an issue, Google needs to make money in order to continue offering the free services and this is valuable information.
