No. This plugin will automatically display any keywords that were used by visitors of your site.
Google does not ALWAYS send keyword and ranking information. In order to provide increased privacy, Google does not pass along keyword information for any users logged into their Google accounts. If someone is logged into Gmail or another Google product when they use the Google search engine, Google will not pass along keyword data in the referral string. This is the reason you may see a keyword of “not provided” when using traffic analytics programs including Google Analytics itself. Currently the Rank Checker plugin will filter out any results where either the keyword or ranking is unavailable.
Google also blocks keyword data when using SSL (https:// instead of http). If you log out of your Google account to try and generate some test data, please make sure you first navigate to the regular “http:// version” of http://www.google.com. By default you remain on the SSL version of http://www.google.com right after logging out of your Google account.
Currently we support only Google keyword tracking. We are looking into ways to add Bing and Yahoo results but as of now they are not supported.
