All keywords searched by your users on search engines are now visible into your Referrers reports! The ultimate solution to 'Keyword not defined'. Try now for free.
Hi, this is Stefan from Matomo, the creators of the web analytics platform which is used by over 1.4 million websites and apps in over 190 countries.
Some years ago most search engines decided to hide keywords from the referrer urls, which made it impossible for web analytics tools to report reliable keyword statistics. Tools like Matomo started reporting keyword searches as "Keyword not defined" or "Keyword not provided".
Ever wondered how to get better insights on those hidden keywords?
With our Search Engine Keywords Performance plugin, you will get back deep insights about all the keywords that people are searching for when clicking on your websites. All of your keywords directly into your familiar Matomo Analytics reports. The biggest search engines are providing tools and APIs that allow us, website owners, to get the list of our keywords along with the critical metrics Impressions, Clicks, ClickThrough ratio and Average position in the Search results page. This plugin makes it easy for you to connect to the APIs and will automatically import your valuable keyword data into Matomo Referrers reports.
Stop being in the dark about this incredible keyword searches information and know what your users and customers are searching for.
Which queries caused your website to appear in search results? Stop wasting time by looking up keyword statistics in serveral Webmaster Tools and start getting combined results across all supported search engines within Matomo. Which queries result in more traffic to your website than others? Improve your SEO efforts and monitor your position and performance for each Keyword directly in your Matomo reports.
As a bonus you will also get a new "Crawling overview" report which reports all the most important information about how Search Engines robots crawl your websites.
Was there any server errors or connection timeout? How many pages of my websites were crawled and indexed? How many page not found errors? How many total inbound links were found pointing to my website? Keep an eye on these search crawling metrics metrics directly within Matomo. Do not miss important errors and maximise your SEO power to get more traffic!
Eliminate "not found" pages that give your visitors a bad experience and lose less visitors on your website

The page crawling errors reports gives you a list of all pages that could not be crawled by a search engine with a detailed reason. This helps you to take the right actions to improve the experience on your website.
