Google Analytics: How often search my users?


Well-known member
I want to find out, how often my users use the xenForo search engine. In Google Analytics > Content > Overview > Site Content > All Pages there are different sites displayed:

  • /search/search
  • /search/?type=post
  • /search/123455
  • /search/1234/q=?asdfghj

Which value represents the amount of search requests?


Well-known member
I believe that /search/search is the route that the form submits to, but I'm not able to verify that on my phone.

In that case /search/search would be called every search once, correct? Then this value in Google Analytics shows how often my users searched.

I'm not positive. Usually, that page is just a redirect to a results page. However, if there are no results, then it will display actual content.
