Tracking users search input/queries from my website

Hi, I’m new to amplitude and can’t seem to track results from our search function on our website.

I’ve tried creating events where “page url=..” without luck. I would like to organise the search results to get a better understanding on what the users want on the website, and a counter to what the most popular search words are etc.

Hi @Lauritz Norløff 

How have you instrumented your search function?

Ideally, you should trigger an event after a successful search is performed by a user.

e.g “Search Completed” with an event property like search_query = “ xyz” ( the search query string used )
Using an event segmentation chart, you can group this event by your search_query to see which search terms are popular.

Let me know if I have interpreted your use case correctly.
