can you see the most used searches in Confluence?


I would like to see what words are used the most in the search-bar.

Is this possible and if so: how?

Thank you

Hi Vera,

We do not have this feature bundled in Confluence. However I believe it's a valid idea. Being that said, I was able to raise a new feature request that way our product manager can see it.

I would strongly suggest that you vote on this issue to increase its popularity and add it to your watchlist for future updates. Please comment there, showing how good that feature would be if we had it in Confluence.


Eventually did this:

  1. Installed Viewtracker Plugin
  2. Then to show it only to a particular group e.g. administrators I installed Visibility Plugin

Pay attention to the second plugin: it's free but you do have to licence it. Click on Buy and checkout with $ 0,00. More info on this here.

3. Go to your Confluence General Configuration Page. In the menu left there's an extra option for ServiceRocket Plugins: Visibility. Put the key there.

Good luck!

Hi Vera, hopefully you're still about. To confirm, does this allow you to see/group search terms used in Confluence? This is a feature specifically requested by one of my colleagues.

No I did not, just the visitors

You should follow William's Zanchet's link

If you have download version you can use google analytics Inject GA code into the header of each page using Browse > Confluence Admin > 'Look and Feel' - Custom HTML > Edit then in GA Set query parameters to queryString,searchQuery.queryString Category Parameter to key,searchQuery.spaceKey,where Then you will start being able to see search terms in GA Behaviour > Site Search > Search terms
