If you're looking at a part in Google Analytics where there can be traffic from other sources than search engines, for instance, referrals or direct traffic, and you cross reference with "keywords" you'll see (not set) because there were actually no keywords involved.

You have to go directly to the search engine reports and then you won't see the "not set."

It doesn't mean you're getting found by the phrase 'not set.'

If you're using AdWords to drive traffic to your site and you're not configuring something properly data will be lost and you'll the "(not set)" in your reports.

For Websites that don't use AdWords where the "(not set)" shows up under a search engine's keyword list, there may be a redirect in-between the search engine and the final destination page, and some of the referral data is being lost.
