Changes to Search Query Data in Google Analytics


In my previous post, I shared about what Google’s Hummingbird Changes mean for SEO. As we understand, Google’s goal behind Hummingbird roll out was to put emphasis on the quality of content to improve the search experience for savvy search engine users.

If you are used to looking at search query data in Google Analytics, Sorry to inform you that Google has removed this feature from Google Analytics, as a matter of privacy. You no longer can look at the search queries bringing traffic to your website. Google reports this traffic in the (not provided) category.

Lack of Search Query Data reporting in Google Analytics does not take away the importance of Keywords in your Web Copy. Keyword Research is still a critical step in writing Optimized Web Copy & in your overall marketing strategy.
