Tracking keywords and search engines


#1

Tracking keywords and search engines does not work in my case, it’s showing by Referrer URL direct entry or so, and i ask a few folks to click in yahoo and google the web site and navigate just to register visits from search engines, to understand how it works, but in my case it does not work. I only installed the javascript code on the web site, do i have to do some other configuration to have search engine and keywords data, which is important to me… Thank you very much

I’ve added this in searchengine.php file // Google
google.com’ => array(‘Google’, ‘q’, ‘search?q={k}’),
www.google.de’ => array(‘Google’, ‘q’, ‘search?q={k}’),
www.google.hu’ => array(‘Google’, ‘q’, ‘search?q={k}’),
www.google.fr’ => array(‘Google’, ‘q’, ‘search?q={k}’),
www.google.es’ => array(‘Google’, ‘q’, ‘search?q={k}’),
www.google.pt’ => array(‘Google’, ‘q’, ‘search?q={k}’),
www.google.jp’ => array(‘Google’, ‘q’, ‘search?q={k}’),
www.google.ro’ => array(‘Google’, ‘q’, ‘search?q={k}’),
www.google.it’ => array(‘Google’, ‘q’, ‘search?q={k}’),

so other google domains, is this necessary or not? to have keywords and search engine google and yahoo world wide, because the tracker is instaled on a multi lingual website with visits from germany, austria, luxembourg france…
thank you

mindsoul: that isn’t necessary. In fact, if you read the comments at the top of the file, you’d see that {} represents the wildcard match on 2 letter country codes, so the following already matches what you added manually.


'google.{}'					=> array('Google'),

I suspect there’s something else involved. Please PM the URL of the site you’re trying to track referers on.

the web site is http://www.nice-tourism.com/ now there are 3 languages installed but it will be 8 languages installed so at least 8 countries, the piwik is not on this server because there are some limitation on the server where http://www.nice-tourism.com/ is hosted and piwik could not work there , the piwik is instaled on another domain on a different server location where piwik can function, it can be viewed the js source code.
Thanks

Looks fine to me. No errors in the tracking request and referral cookie has the correct referrer url.

There are document.write errors in the frames, but they don’t appear to affect piwik.js.

Can you PM matt with ftp & piwik dashboard login/password to your piwik server?

ftp i cannot because are other domains there but a login user yes , i come inside using Yahoo Search - Ricerca nel Web | Motore di Ricercaylt=AgsDwdbsxoRLgjBLMM_TdrcbrK5?vc=&p=nice-tourism.com&toggle=1&cop=mss&ei=UTF-8&fr=yfp-t-709
it can be seen in the attachment that the script register me as direct visit and not coming from yahoo search.
