Is there a way to track especially google searches from url filtering ?
From url filtering logs it cannot be seen the same url as a person visit when searches for a word.
we need search stats
Solved! Go to Solution.
From URL filtering you can check to see if certain queries were made with something like ( url contains '=Kalashnikov' ). But I can't quite gather what information you are trying to get.
Sorry, I was using yahoo.com. Google must scramble the search somehow. Also, if you are signed in to google, you are always forced to HTTPS. I can't see any queries when I use Google. If I use any other search site I can find the search string in the URL.
Currently i do not believe PA firewall logs the searches done by the users.
However in the categories it will just show up as search-engines.
Moreover in the url filtering if you are looking for a specific search you can search based on the filter contains google and search engines
( url contains 'google' ) and ( category eq search-engines )
The above might not give you exactly what you are looking for, however it might narrow down your search.
However if this is something that is useful in your environment you can request a feature with your local Sales Engineer.
Hope this helps.
