For updated information, please see: Search-Tagging in our documentation
Nosto tracks what a customer is searching for by reading the search query from the URL's query parameter or from the page source.
When the search term exists as a part of the URL's query parameters e.g. https://www.example.com?q=searchterm, Nosto can be configured to read the search term and you can skip the search term tagging.
When the search term exists as a part of the URL e.g. https://www.example.com/searchterm, Nosto is unable to read it from the URL and you will need to tag as a part of the page source.
