In one particular Google Analytics account, for Google organic traffic, I'm seeing something I haven't seen before. Many of the organic keywords are being reported as follows:
Where domain is the site, and +keyword is appended to the end of it. There are some 'normal' keywords being reported, such as 'red widgets', but there are a TON of visits, with several visitors, being reported with the domain name and the plus sign and a keyword being reported.
Seems as though this might be an error in reporting somehow, I couldn't imagine anyone actually searching for that phrase as a keyword.
I have found weird keywords on Omniture Site Catalyst - We can't see any content relevant to those keywords. I have assumption that it might came from hotlink images that we shared to third party site - Omniture may capture search query on those site. There is no Omniture tracking code on those site - I just wonder is it related to hotlink image?
