    Logging search terms


    I believe that XSLT Search does not offer a method of logging search terms that users have entered. I was wondering if anyone has added this functionality to XSLT Search or if they can suggest how it should be done. Perhaps using some C# or XSLT to store each search in the Umbraco database or in a log file.

    The easy way would be to add the search page to Google Analytics to track search terms.

    Otherwise, add a C# function to the .cs file in the app_data folder that will connect to a database (either the umbraco database or your own) and insert a record for each search performed. You would then add a call to that function in the XSLTsearch.xslt file when search results are displayed.
