Google Site Search Parameters for Google Analytics?
they give a choice - but don't say why

When implementing the Site Search product (100 bucks / mon) I am trying to get this to be integrated with Google Analytics.

They say "enter your query parameters" and say what these might be - but don't say what they 'should' be.

We do nothing non-standard with our site search, or our plain old HTML site.

Reading logs for years tells me the search parameter used to be "q=" - is that what they want? (I don't think so...)

Thanks,

(I think you meant to say 100 bucks/year). Some Site Search features were confusing for me as well. As I understand, you need to enter, perhaps hundreds of parameters to figure out the search patterns of your visitors. What happens if you don't enter all possible parameters and potential search words/phrases? What you will get will be limited to what you entered. So, you will never get the real world facts of what your visitors wanted to know and got frustrated when visiting your website.
Currently, I use it as a tool to assist our visitors rather than as a tool for our own purposes.

yes, 100/yr.

one of the key differentiators was the supposed tie-in with Analytics.

Has anyone had any better luck with this?

How might one go about figuring this out?

The Google "help" line wasn't helpful, nor was the forum I looked into that they recommended.

first of all i hope this doesnt look like spam! because im going to suggest a company. When it comes to analytics and Web Server Monitoring [observepoint.com...] really does a good job. They track your website traffic and lots of other things. I hope that's helpful.

Chad,

That pretty much looks like a linkdrop that doesn't really address the topic unless I'm missing something.

Albeit, it is an interesting company etc - but I'm still not getting anywhere in resolving my issue based on this link.
