Extraction of Google refer's? (8 posts)

    I'm getting a lot of Google traffic, and my current referrer list is kinda messy. So I was wondering if anyone had a tool for sorting out Google traffic and somehow parsing out the searched terms?
    I would love to have something like that, it would help me improve the structure of my writing and the site in general tremendously.

    I personally use awstats for my referral and visit tracking. But I do agree that it would be interesting to have a WordPress hack to monitor search engine referrals and keyword usage. I might use the search engine plug-in idea from awstats to come up with a hack. No ETA though. If anyone else has something implimented, sure would like to know!

    I would check out http://www.phpee.com . There's some good code in there, and a lot of mess too, but I use it for most of my sites.

    I hacked a new function into the ncYoung refererLib.php that parses Google queries. So, if you're using that, just copy/paste in a few new functions, and you should be set. I've been running it for a couple months over at my blog. It's really not too tricky - the only weird thing is that sometimes search parameters are URL-encoded, and sometimes quoted-printable encoded.
    Unfortunately, my server is down (host is having some issues), but should be up shortly. I do need to do some cleanup to the code around the DB access.
    A couple features I'm intending to add:
    * Support for parsing other search engines
    * Add a control panel into the WP admin section to manage the DB table
    I might have a bunch of this done over the weekend, but I'll at least try and get the current code onto the web tonight if anyone else wants to hack at it.

    When I posted on a different subject [namely, presenting Googlers or other Web searchers with a popup telling 'em they've hit a Weblog when they hit my site], somone suggested the Google Hilite in the comments.
    You might peruse the comments to that entry and see where it takes you.
