To get started with Site Search tracking, login as the Super User or an Admin user and go to Administration > Websites > Manage (or Administration > Measurables > Manage). From here, edit your chosen website via the pencil icon located on the rightedit_iconand you can then enable or disable Site Search tracking for your website.

Here is what the admin UI looks like for a particular website:

All Site Search reports are available under the main menu Behaviour > Site Search.

Please note; when enabling the Site Search feature in Matomo using URL Parameters, the Site Searches that are tracked with this method will not register as a pageview in Matomo. Clicked pages from the results of a Site Search should be tracked as a pageview.

The site search action itself will not appear in the pages report
