Guide for:

This report shows all the words your visitors entered in the search engine to reach your site. The first table shows the number of the search keywords listed in the table below, the number of visits they have generated and the percentage on the total visits generated by referrer.


Each table row shows the following data:
By clicking on the Pages (Landing Pages of each Referrer) icon  you can access the report that shows the trend of visits coming from the specific referrer in the selected time period.

“Not provided” keywords
"Not provided" keywords continue to increase. Since several months Google doesn’t provide keywords data any more.
Therefore all web analytics platform, including Google Analytics, cannot show the keywords used to reach web sites.
In fact each browser receives an empty search string which is defined as "not provided keyword" instead of the true keyword used to find the web site.
For more information, please visit the post on ShinyStat Blog.

Bounce Rate
The Bounce Rate, in connection with a traffic source, helps you in understanding the possible reactions of users when arriving on your site from a specific search engine or keyword.
A high Bounce Rate could be due to a gap between the landing page and the expectations that an ad in the site, in a search engine or in a promotional campaign has generated in the user.
The Pages report (Pages) lets you see in detail which pages have a higher "Bounce Rate" for a specific source, providing you with a useful set of statistics to figure out what are the problems for your visitors and optimize your investment.
For more information about Bounces, please take a look at the page called: Bounces - Bounce Rate
Bounces and Bounce Rate are available since July 2010.

Search keywords & SERD™ (ShinyStat™ Business only)
To measure your site ranking, ShinyStat has developed the SERD™: it indicates the average ranking of your site on the selected search engine, in relation to each keyword.
The SERD™ is available for the major search engines.

Campaign Conversions
In order to properly measure the visits coming from sponsored links and their conversions, please use the Campaign Conversions feature. 

For easier reading, the last row in the list shows the total listed values.
This value is the sum of the values in all the pages and not only of the value in the current page.
