    Since the start of the year, more and more of my queries are returning (not provided) as the keyword.

    I found out last night through random chance that the new Google SSL search for people logged into Google+ is what is causing it as Google isn't passing the keyword information through SSL searches.

    Basically they're introducing more and more measures against organic search and forcing people to use adwords as the keyword data is passed through by adwords.

    Soon as more and more browsers switch this on(mozilla has announced it) it will basically become impossible to track which keywords are bringing you traffic and converting. Has anyone thought of some sort of workaround? I know I'm getting traffic, I know some of it is converting but which??
