Setting up site search?[ Edited ]
April 2017 - last edited April 2017
Can anyone guide me please. I'd like to set up site search on my Wordpress site and pick up any search queries used on the site via my GA reporting.
- Do I need to use a plugin - if so, what do you recommend?
- I'd like to track any and all search queries. The Google help information mentions I have to define some parameters. I don't really understand that. Can I ignore it? What's its purpose?
Re: Setting up site search?
John-Paul the query parameter is need it is what identifies the search as a search and it is easy to determine go to your website and do a search on the result page look at the URL it will say something like www.yoursite.com/searchresults.aspx?s=search_term_entered in this case the query parameter would just an s no equal sign no question mark just an s, on my sites I see this parameter as a q, s, or r but it can be anything. If you still need help then the community would need to know your URL but the above should get you started.
