What is

I use PPC, sometimes I see"keyword" but most of the time I see

What does the aclk mean and how can I tell what keywords they were searching on before they clicked my ad?

It's short for "ad click" I think, because it does come from paid searches. We are planning to add support for it in the future.

Hello Kevin and Friendly Clicky Admin,

One of the reasons I bought a premium account with Clicky is (perhaps was) that I am able to see who visits my website and what keywords are used to get there. Now more and more people get to my website with the aclk link as a referrer (yes I am using Adwords), so I can't figure out what keywords were used.

I understand that Google is trying to keep as much information to itself ($$), but I really hope you guys can fix this... It's really important information for everyone who does a little bit of on-line marketing.

Yes it is fixable. The search query is in the referrer string. We will get it implemented in the near future.

I would also appreciate it if you could support the paid clicks keyword trace feature as soon as possible. The problem occurred recently maximum 2 month ago. By the way except the keyword paid click problem getclicky is in my opinion the best Webanalytic-Software on the market. Keep on going guys.

I need this also, hope you can get this resolved soon as we're losing all of our data, thanks Clicky.

Yes I too would like this feature. it seems that 50% of my clicks from adwords have this in there and it looks very suspicious
to me. as most stay about 10 seconds on my site....please hurry

@dosarrest, I just posted a question regarding DSL visitors vs. broadband. I'm wondering if my page load times are to slow for DSL and people are bouncing because I'm getting a lot of 10 sec visitors as well.

On I think you will find that it is from clicks, not on you AdWords ad but on a Google Map List of Businesses. IMPORTANT, IF you select NO on the option to show your add if the user clicks on your Map reference - you may get billed for the Ad display even though you shouldn't. I was.
