Track search events with Google Analytics

By default, search events are automatically tracked by Google Analytics, if you have Site Search Tracking enabled in your Google Analytics setup.

However, in certain cases Findify query parameters can conflict with your site query parameters which can cause issues. To overcome this issue, we're prefixing our parameters with a common prefix, e.g. findify, so instead of q to identify the query parameter, the findify_q is used, which is not tracked by Google Analytics by default.

To setup the new query, and make sure all Findify searches are correctly tracked in Google Analytics, please follow these instructions:

  1. Perform a search in your store and identify the query parameter in the url. Most likely it will be findify_q or search_q

Find the query parameter name

  1. Go to Google Analytics -> Admin page -> 'View Settings`

Select View Settings

  1. Scroll down the page to the Site Search Settings
  2. Enabled the Site search Tracking if it's not enabled
  3. Insert a comma and paste the query parameter from step 1

Insert the query parameter obtained in step 1
