Why are no search terms and keywords recording in stats?
For the last week or so, there don't seem to be any search terms sources under my stats. I used to find it helpful to know what keywords people are using to find my hubs. Are you having the same problem?
Google is now using secure search if the user is logged in. So as more people search Google while logged into their account, the less data they let analytics types of programs see the keywords and other details related to the search query that brought them to your site/page
You can find all that info and much more from webmaster tools. There you can see what keywords you are ranking for, what your individual rank, how many times your hubs are showing up in searches, and how many times they are clicked. The feature HubPages added was ok at best, but overall not very useful compared to what is available.

I looked under Stats/ Search and it says "Search Term Sources not available" for all of my Hubs. Is this a new "feature" or am I looking in the wrong place?

This is going to seem like an ignorant question, but how do you get search terms for your hub?Should I just add a bunch of tags, everything that I can think of?

Or not? I mean the kewords there are not listed in the keywords I put for the hubs.

What's the creepiest keyword you've seen bringing people to your hubs.I just had "cancer patients with tramp stamps nude" and it creeped me out.

Why is search terms data gone?That was a very useful feature for determining what people are searching for when they find your hubs and I haven't been able to use it for a long time and any of my 60+ hubs. Why do away with that?

When I look at HubPages stats and click on Keywords why does it sometimes say "no search terms found." On other hubs there are several search terms. In case you need the title of the hub, it's "Surviving the Death of a Spouse."
