How to track search queries in Confluence outside of Google Analytics plugin?

Is there a way one can search queries in Confluence within a specific space? That is, if I have a search set up within a space (vs. a global search).

Unfortunately at this time my organization is unable to purchase/install the Google Analytics Plugin for Confluence, so hoping for a workaround in the meantime. 

I know this question has been posed before, so apologies if it sounds like a repeat!

Hi Cindy, we are using PIWIK analytics in our company. You can implement the tracking JS snippet with ease. Piwik is open source and can be installed on prem. You'll be able to fulfill all privacy requirements and be the owner of your data without any cloudservice involved. BR! Dennis

Hi Cindy, I blogged about this back in 2009 -- "4 Useful Tips on Google Analytics Reporting for Confluence" and it still holds true.

Check section 2 -- "Enable Site Search & Search Categories in GA" -- and section 3 -- "Use "Site Search Categories" to show search terms from within individual sites".

I hope this helps.
