Search log sample: Google Appliance

Posted on | Leave a comment

  • Jeremy Bertrand, Interactive Communications Specialist at the Washington State Department of Transportation, has kindly provided a sample of a search log generated by Google Appliance. These queries were searched from this search interface at the Washington State DoT site.

    The following legend will help you understand the log data; Ed Costello pointed us to a much better explanation of Google Appliance logs, or you could go directly to Google’s documentation.
