    I've seen a few websites using it, and I was wondering where can I find it? Basically, it displays terms people used to find your website on search engines in the post and in the WP-Admin panel on each post.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yeah, it may cause Google to think that your website is over optimized for your search terms.

    The best thing about wordpress being the vast majority of plugins that you can use. Simply search the plugin directory from your admin backpanel and you will find most of what you see in use on other sites.

    What this got to do with OP? Idiot.

    On topic: I didn't heard anything wrong about this plugin. Give it a try.

    Guys come on.. incoming searches 90% are encrypted. IF anything webmasters will show a few more then anyone else and at least give you an idea.

    Just because you use longer sentences, it doesn't mean it doesn't qualify as post count spam.

    Incoming Search Terms including referring tagging is nothing new in the world of wordpress. It worked ages ago, when all you needed was a bunch of keywords to stuff and cloak the s*** out of sites. Wordpress, from the very nature of it, at least from usual web design principles already has enough of your keywords in navigation structures, menu, categories, related posts etc. Adding incoming search terms as tags, from what i have seen on number of sites, will only increase your chances of hurting your sites' ranking for over-optimising your content.

    One of the main reasons I want to get that plugin is not to actually improve my content, I am looking for as much as possible information about my visitors and how they find my website, so I can focus my SEO on proper terms.
