So I thought I was being cunning by putting in a filtered profile which would have an advanced custom filter to re-write incoming URLs into the format expected by GA site search tracking.
But it doesn't work.
Here's the incoming URLs that won't track:
And here is the after they are rewritten, all nice and tidy with just the keyword:
However, with site search tracking enabled, nothing is showing in the site search report.
Here is the filter config:
And the URL Rewrites are done with regex:Â /search/jobs/(.*)\?job
The capture group is output to a Request URI like this:Â /\?q=$A1
But perhaps the Internal Site Search tracking is applied before the filters: which is a bug right?
Thanks to Student Job Search for allowing me to publish this blog.
