Statistics: Searches

In this article

The Searches‚Äč report will provide you with a breakdown of search queries over time. This can give you insight as to the most popular topics your users are trying to find in your LibGuides site. Each search term provides the location of where the search was made and the number of times it was used. Locations include:

  • System: searches made via your homepage or guides.
  • AZ: searches made via your A-Z Database List page.

The report also includes a chart showing the total number of searches per day.
