tracking search

May 15, 2009 at 3:11 PM

Hi,

I have a simple Search TextBox and CommandButton in my Silverlight app and I want to track in Google Analytics what people are searching for.

Should I use TrackPageView or TrackEvent?

In case the answer is TrackEvent I'd like to know how to handle that exactly (I've got the videoTracker example working, but I'm not sure on how to translate this to other scenarios).

Thanks in advance!

TrakePageView is probably the way to go.  You can go into analytics and configure it so that it will parse the URL's used by your search pages and show you what keywords people are searching for.
