    I am looking to set up a client with a site search GA report. If I go into the admin section in GA, I have the option of adding up to 5 query parameters.

    Typically, the parameter that I am looking for comes before the "=" sign in the Sitefinity search results page. This is a search URL Sitefinity page that I am using to find this information.


    Google states: In the Query Parameter field, enter the word or words that designate an internal query parameter, such as "term,search,query". Sometimes the word is just a letter, such as "s" or "q".

    It appears that the parameter is indexCatalogue. If I add that info into GA however, nothing is being reported. I've also tried "search" and "query" as well. Does the Lucene search engine not support any type of analytics data for me to use? Or is there something that I can use to find out what users are searching for in the internal search engine?

    This should have nothing to do with Lucene or even Sitefinity, as Google Analytics should automatically parse the URL.

    Did you make sure that Google Analytics is configured properly on your website? e.g. do you see any traffic in GA (outside of site search). If the URL is public, would you mind sharing it?
