Search strings and wildcards? What’s up..

Hey guys,

When targeting search strings, typically we do this:

But how can we target strings like this, or is it a non issue:…q=keyword+here


or when they’re much longer than that.

Would something like this work…*q=keyword*.*q=keyword

Or is this a non issue at all? I couldn’t find anything in regards to TV or LI on this.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Wildcards don’t work
When your URL string is too long, you can

1. Truncate from the left
2. Truncate from the right
3. Target subsections

I don’t ever target the full search string. I normally just use




Note that if you use Cpvlab (this could be a problem with p202 as well) that if your keyword is tarts with a & that it can bugger up your tracking as it will be seen as an additional URL variable.

Therefore I recommend you don’t target
