Hi guys,

I've been having some troubles configuring the searched terms in my website in Analytics. I've been following some tutorials but ultimately I can't extract the correct parameter from my url.

My url after search:✓&q%5Btitle_or_description_cont%5D=Prancha&q%5Bcity_cont%5D=&...

Can you help me extract the correct parameter to configure in Google Analytics so I can star tracking what my users are looking for. 

I'm sorry if I'm in the wrong forum but I'm doing this on my phone and it was the only support I found!


Thank you in advance!

Hello Francisco!

it looks like "q%5Btitle_or_description_cont%5D" is the parameter you are looking for.
The parameter might need to be "q\Btitle_or_description_con\5D" since "%5" is an encoded backslash.

Hope this helps!
