trades - Search Engines
All traffic activity generated by search engine surfers is grouped under a single system trade.
The trade search engines in Stats - Main Overview displays all hits & clicks generatd by
traffic that arrived at your site via the (search engine) domains that are listed on this page.
This way its not neccesary to add hundreds of individual trades to get an idea about the amount
of SE traffic your site receives. By default, ATC ships with a list of approx 150 SE domains.
ATC can also extract the search phrases that were used to find your website with the search engines.
To setup so called trackers, write the query string variable name behind the search engine domain,
delimiting the two values with a star character: *
For example, when we go to google.com and search on arrowscripts, we see the following url
Notice how google uses q= to specify the search string.
The name of the search variable is q=
So in the ATC search engines list, we fill out google.com*q=
google.com is the domain
*q= is the tracker
To find out which search keywords have been used to find your site, go to Stats --> Main overview --> Search Engines trade --> Stats submenu --> Keywords
