Keywords in Google Image


AWStats reports include a standard list of keyphrases and keywords used by visitors of your site coming from the popular search engines.

Keywords and keyphrases used for Google Image searches are not included in the list. They can be very different of the other keywords.

This extra section lists the complete search phrases, including quotes and other special characters, as used by the visitors coming from Google Image.

You can add the Extra Section below at the end of your awstats.your-domain-name.conf configuration file.

    Thank you.

  2. Jean-Luc says:

    This extra section is deprecated.

    On November 29, 2007, Google changed the format of the URL’s of Google Image. The new format does not contain the search keywords anymore.

  3. Ed says:

    I guess that’s the reason why I could not see image keyphrases since the beginning of this month. Anyway to solve this issue?

  4. Jean-Luc says:

    Good news: Google Image returned to the old “regular” format on December 7. It is again possible to extract image search keywords.

    Looks like it has changed AGAIN, it looks impossible to get to keywords. I’ll try Javascript to see if I can get to the frame with the searchfield.

  7. James says:

    I tested it for a few days and it seems to work fine here, John.
