See Piwik Keyword not defined FAQ

See google announcement

We should make sure that the "search engine" appears as google still, but keyword would appear as "Keyword not provided"

Apparently it is not standard SSL behavior, they somehow still pass the referrer but with empty &q= query parameter.

In the log_visit DB, I suggest that the referer_name be "google" and referer_keyword be empty string. During archiving, the datatable label would be a constant KEYWORD_NOT_PROVIDED. Then, this will be replaced in an API filter with the localized string eg. "Keyword not provided" in english.

For the detection logic:

  • no referrer - track as a search engine with empty keyword
  • a referrer with specified query parameter but empty is also a search engine with empty keyword
  • where the keyword is non-empty, track as search engine with non-empty keyword
  • where the keyword detection fails, track as external website

Replying to vipsoft:

For the detection logic:

  • no referrer - track as a search engine with empty keyword

No referrer == Direct entry, not search engine :)

Otherwise OK!

@robocoder

What about the case where the referrer is justhttp://domain.tld

(In [5604]) Fixes #2718

  • Only fixes for Google for now, we can generalize the code later when other search engines start doing the same
  • Marking hidden keywords as "Keyword not defined"
  • Linking the keyword to the new FAQ: Piwik Keyword not defined

  • do not display "Your top converting keywords are: 'Keyword not defined'" because it is very irritating!
