I see 'keyword' column when downloaded the report from budurl, what is that?

Is it mean that we can track keywords too from budurl? how is it works? For instance, if my budurl link is directed to website A - can we track keywords from visitor that coming from google search engine to website A?

pls let me know

Hi, There.  This is a feature that is unfortunately no longer available.  Before Google encrypted the keywords that were used in search queries, we were able to pull these keywords from inbound URLs and display them within BudURL.  Unfortunately, when Google disabled this features for all external analytics companies, the feature ceased to function for Google searches.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Thank You!

Thanks for your quick reply. Appreciate it!

How if I want to track keywords from my own website that have such URL like google in the old days? 

Example:

http://www.mysite.com/ref=sr_1_14?ie=UTF8&qid=1407843020&sr=8-14&keywords=professional+toothbrush

Can I request for budurl to display the "professional toothbrush"?

Pls let me know

thx

Hi, Nell. This is actually a really interesting idea.  We'll take a look at it, but I can't make any promises on timelines at the moment.

Thanks!
