    I'm playing around with Notifications and Notices... and the option " User arrived on this site from a search engine" doesn't seem to work.

    I turn it on. Do a test by searching for the site in Google... find the site... click on the link... and nothing.

    I've done it in regular Chrome and Incognito. It's the only option selected on the user criteria page.

    I just tried it here and it worked as expected. Note that if your browser isn't sending a referrer header to indicate it came from a known search engine, it won't trigger. Additionally, the criteria involves where they first arrived from, not the particular page's referrer; this means that the significance is when your session is created or your first page view in a specific period of time. Private/incognito browsing would be particularly important for testing (and closing the private window between tests).

    I figured it was something like that. I eventually got it to work. Thanks for your help.
