HTTPS Bing in Referrer Websites instead of Search Engines

I get a lot of “https://www.bing.com/” referrers under Referrer Websites.

I think it’s not appearing under search engines because of the httpS protocol in the URL.

Can you move those under Search Engines please?

Maybe the best solution would be to treat http & https the same for all search engines in an uniform manner, to prevent similar problems in the future. I’m sure that all misc search engines will start to offer HTTPS one by one, and Piwik will put them under Websites. :slight_smile:

Thanks for letting us know, created a bug report @ Bing, Yahoo, etc. may be shown as "Websites" instead of "Search engines" · Issue #9438 · matomo-org/piwik · GitHub

Hi,

Are there any news on this?

Still getting lots of search engine marked as simple websites.

HTTPS referrer search engines:
