    Good afternoon

    We are looking at using the events tracking for Google analytics integration https://documentation.ajaxsearchpro.com/analytics-integration/events-tracking. We can see live events have appeared in google analytics but we are not seeing any data in the Site search overview. Should we be seeing this data?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    In this case no, as live searches are tracked as events. Site search is mostly used for pageviews, when a specific page type is visited via a query argument. Usually when users visit your search page (yourdomain.com/?s=..), then it is triggered. You may have to enable it on the google analytics admin page and add the “s” as the query parameter.

    Hi thanks for responding so quickly

    We dont have a dedicated search page as we are only using the drop down search results functionality. Is it not possible to record site searches if we only have the dropdown down results option?

    We were going to try and look at the legacy option after reading https://documentation.ajaxsearchpro.com/analytics-integration/site-search-tracking. If that might work instead?

    Thanks

    Yes – that should still work. It will trigger a page view as if the search results page was viewed, and after some time the data should be available in the site search dashboard.
