Add Search Engines

StatCounter Team
Hi all,

We currently track over 100 search engines - this means that when we give you your keyword analysis, these keywords are extracted from all the searches done with the 100+ search engines we know about.

If we don't know about a search engine, we can't extract the keywords from it, so tell us if we're missing any!

Keep an eye on your referring URLs and let us know about any search engines you want added.

If you want a search engine added, you MUST post an example of the full search url here so the query string structure can be seen. When you go to a search engine and enter a query, the full search url is what is available in your browser address bar at the top of all the search results.

Please do NOT post this kind of thing:

This is what we are looking for:;_ylt=A0geumvNSTVIiloALcTqFAx.?p=montreal+gas+prices&ei=UTF-8&iscqry=&fr=sfp

As the search engines are added to the StatCounter system, I'll update this thread to let you know.

As Webado has outlined several times, adding the various search engines to the StatCounter system is not an automatic process - each search engine must be added manually.

Here are some full search URLs to get the ball rolling:

You need to provide examples of referrer urls so the query string structure can be seen.

I've never even heard of this engine, so it must be a rebundled one.

Hi folks,

I have been doing a big clean-up on this thread today.

I have had to delete a few messages that wandered off-topic OR which didn't provide full search URLs.

As Webado said, if you are posting here to add a search engine you MUST provide an example of the referrer urls so the query string structure can be seen.

We need this:;_ylt=A0geumvNSTVIiloALcTqFAx.?p=montreal+ga s+prices&ei=UTF-8&iscqry=&fr=sfp

NOT this:

I know progress is slow with adding the search engines you suggest, but I will be talking to our developers about this just as soon as I can!

Hi their, hope you are doing fine and here is a new SE that might be included however it's not in English so hope you can know how to parse the URL:

Just thought it might be helpful if it's added to the list of supported search engines in Stat Counter as am getting a lot of visitors from this one?

Thank you in advance, and keep up the good work.

I guess that Msnbot is an iImage enabled robot. You'd be seeing Yahoo's inktomi and Googlebot Images too. If you ever see Googlebot proper it's because they are running it image enabled.
