Keyword Hero uses the last non-direct click attribution model. This is also the default attribution model used by Google for Universal Analytics (GA3).
There are a couple of things you can do, to help Keyword Hero match your data better:
Do you have both an HTTP and HTTPS property of the Search Console? Make sure that both are in the Search Console account that Keyword Hero has access to and select them in step 2 of the set-up. (Go here, click on the gear icon next to the domain and select “change settings”, then go to step 2).
For GA3 accounts, you can also switch the attribution model to last click attribution (Go here, click on the gear icon next to the domain and select “Use last click attribution”).
A clean setup of Google Analytics has a big impact on the matching rate of the Keyword Hero. Improve your account’s quality by setting up spam filters and make sure your landing pages’ tracking codes work properly.
The match rate will significantly improve over time as we use historic data to train our algorithm. If after four weeks, you’re still below 70% mapped keywords, please reach out to us.
Keyword Hero classifies the keywords that our technology cannot:
(not provided)_bing = unresolved traffic from Bing.
(not provided)_yahoo = unresolved traffic from Yahoo.
(automatic matching) = AdWords information.
(not provided)_subdomain_add_searchconsole = This is traffic to a subdomain. Go to step 2 of the setup process and add Search Consoles for all subdomains that belong to that account.
Goals and conversions
Conversion tracking is only available in paid plans. If you have a paid plan and you still see no conversions, make sure that you have selected the correct Goal or Conversion in step 1 of the setup (Go here, click on the gear icon next to the domain and select “change settings”, then go to step 1, select it above the “Save” button and click “Save”).
You’ll need to setup a unique Keyword Hero project for each Goal you want to analyze your keyword performance.
We don’t want to mess with your main GA account and hence create a new one.
This means that you don’t have edit permissions for the GA account. You can
- Switch accounts (click the button CHANGE ACCOUNT)
- Open a new GA account.
- Get edit permissions on account level ( Go to your Google Analytics account > Admin > User Management).
In 100% of the cases, you have edit permissions on property level, not on account level. However, to create a new property, you need account level permissions. To give it to yourself, please go to your Google Analytics account > Admin > User Management.
