AdWords/Analytics Keyword Data Fix – Thanks Jeff!
Per ROI Revolution’s request, here are the credits for this post – at the top instead of the bottom:
If you have any questions, you can find the source that Jeff found and shared with us here – credit rightly belongs to the Unofficial Google Analytics blog at ROI Revolution for authoring the fix. <—Bold was added for emphasis…I already had that sentence written at the bottom of the post. ROI Revolution may credit others in that post…
This fix was found and shared with us by Jeff because he saw that we documented some problems that were caused by the extra wide use of the tip found here. <—- If you read that post you will find out exactly where we found that tip at the bottom of that post…
Thanks for finding and sharing this fix Jeff!
Here is the fix:
Download/Save this file: ga_keyword.js
Don’t forget to upload the file to the proper directory/location on your website and change the code below accordingly!
Rewrite your analytics code so it looks like this on your landing pages or throughout your entire website if it’s easier:
_uacct = "UA-XXXXX-X";
sleuth(); displays the exact keyword data under the cross segment option User-Defined Value.
So, after implementing this fix, you should see most of the exact keyword data under the cross segment menu. I recommend taking this route but you can find the cross segment menu in almost any detailed page of Google Analytics:
Traffic Sources -> Keywords -> Under the text that says “Search Sent * Visits via * Keywords” you will find a drop down that has the word “Segments:” next to it -> At the bottom of that list you will see “User-Defined Value”…click that and there you have it, your newly exposed exact key term data from Analytics!
I hope Google doesn’t poop on this fix too…
