  1. Hi, I don't get similar kind of search URL result, I've tried to resolve my query as per your blog but unfortunately I'm still not getting the search term result.I'm getting this type of serach URL:
    property-listing/?wpp_search%5Bpagination%5D=on&wpp_search%5Bper_page%5D=10&wpp_search%5Bstrict_search%5D=false&wpp_search%5Blocation%5D=Houston%2C+TX%2C+USA&wpp_search%5Bproperty_type%5D=1_and_2_bedrooms_only%2C1_2_and_3_bedrooms_only%2C2_3_and_4_bedrooms_only&wpp_search%5Bcity%5D=&wpp_search%5Bstate%5D=&wpp_search%5Bzip%5D=

    can you help to get search term result?

  2. Mine is still empty even after turning it On and putting 's' .. Any idea why?
    UPDATE: I turned it Off then turn it On again, then tried searching. It captures the search in Google Data Studio but not in Analytics. Also the second search onwards will not be captured anymore, only the first search. What's wrong with this thing?
