Wooooot is "Encrypted Search"??

 

No surprise that one of my affiliate sites is getting a ton of visits, only to discover G is hiding most of the keyword terms?...

 

Why is that?..is that because they are logged in Gmail?

If you are seeing (not provided) in your Analytics, then yes, it's because people are logged in to their Google accounts.

Well,

 

Why is that?

 

I have had 738 searches this week, on keywords that have been hidden.

It's because Google are mean.

 

Or, if you want Google's take on it (which has some merit, but mostly not):

"What does this mean for sites that receive clicks from Google search results? When you search from Google, websites you visit from our organic search listings will still know that you came from Google, but won't receive information about each individual query. They can also receive an aggregated list of the top 1,000 search queries that drove traffic to their site for each of the past 30 days through Google Webmaster Tools. This information helps webmasters keep more accurate statistics about their user traffic."

 

That's ridiculous.

 

I also like how in that article it makes it more secure for users.

 

ermmm...How can website owners knowing their keyword query be dangerous?

 

It's not like we can track that EXACT user and kill their dog is it?

You are pretty late to the game it's been happening for over a year now. Please see:
