    Analytics shows the search term as (not provided) for all the searches made when a user is logged into a Google Account while doing the search.

    Ahhh, okay thanks SmartMan. Why don't they provide the search term if a user is logged into their Google Account anyway? I'm guessing there's no way to find out what it is?

    Because they're making the search more secure

    Code:

    Don't worry. There's still a workaround.

    Code:

    Not to mention Google Webmaster Tools still shows all the keyword data that are shown as (not provided) in Analytics.

    Hope this helps.
