Extracting ALL of the Keywords Log files and getting at the data Rusky
How does everybody extract all of the keyphrases from their logfiles ?
I use reporting software however it is limited to the number of keyphrases that it returns, say the top 20 or 30.
I would like to look at all of the phrases that people are using to find the site, I don't know how useful this would be but I want to see them !
Thanking you all in advance.
Most software will let you change the defaults of how much data is returned. Certainly Analog which we use does this.
Also you can take your raw log files, and feed them into database or spreadsheet software, define the fields and you can do whatever you like. Log files are really just databases anyway.
I have been all over the reporting software and cannot find anyway to change this section of the report.
I will have to investigate the database side of it
What's the software Rusky? Rusky
It is Webtrends
Bringing it back to the top :) Bentler
In Webtrends, you can change the default for top search phrases, search phrases by search engine, and top keywords when you run the report. The dialogue box you use to edit the title, filename, etc contains a report content tab; click on it and drill down into referrers and keywords; clicking on an item in the list will display context-sensitive settings you can change, like the max length of the keyword list in the report. You can also save the profile so you don't have to do this every time. grnidone
*talking to no body in particular*
I think it would be really cool if someone would put up a tutorial on how to read log files.
