Site Search Keywords should be handled case insensitive, so that "Harry Potter" and "harry potter" are grouped together as the same search term in the Site Search Keywords list.

I'm wondering whether it would be a good solution to make all Site Search keywords lowercase?

Maybe we could display the version that was used the most and on hover display how often each version was used?

from our feedback button:

Site Search Keywords should be handled case insensitive, so that "karen blixen", "Karen Blixen", "Karen blixen" and "karen Blixen" are grouped together as the same search.

we have the same issue with the current version of Matomo, There is still no fix. Is there any update by when there will be a solution?

Just fyi: In case you use the trackSiteSearch tracker method, you could do something like _paq.push(['trackSiteSearch', keyword.toLowerCase()])

Any Update?

Customer's question:
Our search keywords are not case insensitive, so our Matomo setup differentiates between a search for 'macbeth' and a search for 'Macbeth'. This is making it quite hard to get an overall view of how many people are searching for our pieces of content.

How do we remove the case sensitivity and view the searches for 'macbeth' and 'Macbeth' together?

@KarthikRaja1388 currently it must be worked around "manually" in JavaScript, by using "Track Site Search using the Javascript trackSiteSearch() function" and then also manually calling the .toLowerCase() function in JavaScript, when calling trackSiteSearch
