Note that Site Search analytics apply to searches using the CommonSpot Search and Search Results elements only. For viewing and analyzing the results of external searches for your site (e.g., from Google or Bing), see SEO Administration, Analytics and Analytics Settings.

You can get started creating targeted search results by:

  1. Enabling search term tracking and setting the reporting period for tracking Search History.
  2. Bind specific pages to specific keywords in Manage Featured Search Results.
  3. Bind these pages to specific search results pages and enable the Featured setting in the Search Results Element to display Featured results in published pages.

The Search Results element includes options for formatting and publishing "Featured" results listings customized for your site visitors.

The Site Search menu is visible to users with Site Maintenance privileges. Managing full-text search collections requires explicit site-level Manage Collections rights. See Site - General Security.
