Hi, for a few years now, Google has stopped providing organic search keywords, clumpling such visits as "not provided".

There is no workaround for this.

See http://juliencoquet.com/en/2013/01/30/not-provided-is-here-to-stay-deal-with-it/?utm_id=tcen

 

Your only "clues" will be found by linking your Search Console account with your Google Analytics account.

Hi Isabella ,

If a user is logged into a Google product (such as Gmail or any Google Account) when searching, their search is conducted over SSL. As such, the referral data relating to that search is hidden.

Referral data includes some useful information such as the keywords used to perform that search. Google can still see this information, but website owners – and Analytics account holders – can’t access it.

This missing data leaves a gaping hole in our analytics reports, making it difficult for us to know the ROI of specific keywords we rank for in organic search.

To Unlock these Not Provided keywords. you can add a advanced filter.

 

  1. In your Analytics account, head to Admin, then Profiles.
  2. Click the name of the profile you want to work with, and select the Filters tab.
  3. Create a new filter in your Analytics account:

 

The purpose of this filter is to extract the ‘not provided’ terms. To do this, extract the URL and rewrite the two in place of the original ‘not provided’ text. Although this doesn’t reveal the exact keyword, it can help you to understand where that traffic is going and whether you need to dig deeper with other techniques.

Note that this filter can’t be applied to historical data; you’ll only see it in action for new visits.

The above 2 options will definitely help you.

 

Thanks
