I don’t know why I can’t see keywords on Matomo in my statistiques by default. I found this guide : https://matomo.org/faq/reports/import-google-search-keywords-in-matomo/
I follow all the steps but I have a problem here :"Login to Matomo as Super User, click on “Administration (cog icon)” on the top right, and click on “Search Performance” under “System”. "
I don’t have this menu?
I have only these item menu :
I don’t understand because in the documentation it isn’t specified that it is necessary to add an additional plugin?
It’s dishonest because it looks like it’s available on the basic Matomo solution…
I am disappointed because I changed to Matomo when I saw the different possibilities, which for me were therefore free according to the docs that I find. So there are fewer things than on GAnalytics…
And 150 euros to add for each thing that is missing and per year, it is much too expensive for my use.
Thank you for your reply. I didn’t know that Looker Studio was a Google product and free, I thought it was the product of a company because when I searched the first time I came across a site with prices… So I’m going to see that and give it a try.
Just a question because I have several sites: my site, my husband’s site and my sister’s site and I use a single Matomo database for these 3 sites. Can I connect Looker Studio for these 3 sites to my database? I guess I have to do this from every Google account: mine, my husband and my sister? Or how to proceed?
My experience so far with Looker Studio was that the Looker report is per 1 x website ; lets say you wanna connect Google Search Console from all 3 websites to 1 x Looker Studio.
When I tried to do this myself on multiple sites, I wasn’t able to pull in the data from different sites into one Looker Studio report.
I was able though to pull in Google Analytics + Google Search Console data from one website into the same Looker Studio report.
Thus, I’d say in your case for 3 websites you’ll have 3 different Looker Studio reports.
But you’re saying you have one Matomo database for all 3 sites. Most likely you can pull all 3 sites’ Matomo into one Looker Studio as you have one source (combined all 3), but for Google Search Console you can’t pull 3 x Google Search Console data into one Looker Studio.
Come to think of it, if you will have 3 different Looker Studio, you can filter your Matomo hostname in each Looker Studio if you wanna combine Google Search Console data per each website.
At least that was my experience so far unless something changed in the meantime.
I don’t understand everything because I’m a foreigner.
But something bothers me: if I left Google it is because it is not GDPR compliant.
So if I understood correctly by connecting LookingStudio to Matomo, Google will therefore have access to my Matomo database and therefore access to the data… and that they will use as they want…
