hi, Is there any way (within the TOS) to get all search queries users type into the google adsense search box - without altering the content and staying within the TOS?

As far as I know, pre-filling the AdSense search box is prohibited.

I was wondering if there's something similar to the 'adsense tracker' to record all search queries (via javascript) - without altering the search box code of course and staying within the TOS.
Our users perform 60k+ searches per day with the google search box... we then find some of the search terms in our logfiles but I am much more interested in the search terms that did *not* let them find any of our pages to get an idea which kind of content users currently are missing on our site.

I think that Adsense provides a report of which terms were searched for (at least the top ones):

[google.com...]

I've found that by displaying a logo with its own unique name on the search result page that the search term is shown as part of the referrer for pulling up that logo.
