The Search Engine Queries panel in Analytics displays a pie chart showing search terms used to reach your site, ordered by percentage. Since Google hides most search activity from platforms like Squarespace to protect their users’ privacy, we can’t capture all search keywords here.
Availability by plan
The Search Engine Queries panel is available in:
- Commerce plans (Basic and Advanced)
- Website plans (Personal and Business)
“Not provided” represents search activity that Google and other search engines hide from third-party platforms like Squarespace to keep search more secure. Google only shares specific queries resulting in clicks on your paid search ads.
If (not provided) has a high page view count, you might infer that most of this traffic is actually from Google searches. Due to Google’s search security practice, there’s no way to see what those terms are from the Squarespace interface. Instead, we recommend using Google Search Console to see more search terms visitors are using to find you.
