We have a lot of Google Image visits in the external websites panel.

Here is what I notice in the external website panel:

  • The visits come from all the different Google TLDs (.com, .co.uk, etc..)
  • All these visits have the pattern www.google.{xxx}/imgres?
  • All these visits have the keyword parameter missing

At the same time in our "Search Engines & Keywords" view:

  • Some Google Images are tracked
  • All the Google Images visits have keywords
  • There is no "Keyword not defined" value

IMHO: All the Google Images visits without keyword are registered as external website.

Reproducing such URLs in Google Image is quite easy:

1) Go to google image:

www.google.fr/imghp?hl=en&tab=ii

2) Search the following keyword: "my_research_keywords"

www.google.fr/search?
tbm=isch&
hl=en&
source=hp&
biw=1680&
bih=925&
q=my_research_keywords&
gbv=2&
oq=my_research_keywords&
aq=f&aqi=&aql=&
gs_sm=12&
gs_upl=7086l7086l0l7492l1l1l0l0l0l0l83l83l1l1l0&
gs_l=img.12...7086l7086l0l7492l1l1l0l0l0l0l83l83l1l1l0

3) Click on the first image:

www.google.fr/imgres?
hl=en&
biw=1680&
bih=925&
gbv=2&
tbm=isch&

Here the site is loaded in a new page without any search keyword.
Keywords: Google Image imgres

Works for me in the tests, maybe we've fixed it before, please try the latest RC and see if it works OK? from http://builds.piwik.org/?C=N;O=D
