Site Search not generating Page View


#1

Hello.

URLs that are detected as a Site Search (search parameter is present) do not generate a Page View.

I know this has been asked before, but never properly answered. Why is this the case? When you have advertisements on the search page, you would of course like to know the number of page views on that page.

Looking at Piwik\Plugins\Actions\Actions\ActionSiteSearch.php it says:

**
 * This class represents a search on the site.
 * - Its name is the search keyword
 * - **by default the URL is not recorded (since it's not used)**
 * - tracks site search result count and site search category as custom variables
 *
 */

“By default…” - does that mean I can activate the page view tracking somehow?

Thanks very much in advance.
