Additionally, you may also need to enable the organic search tracking feature in Google Analytics. Here's how:

  1. Sign in to your Google Analytics account.
  2. Select the desired website or property for which you want to enable organic search tracking.
  3. Click on the "Admin" button in the lower left corner of the screen.
  4. In the "View" column, click on "View Settings".
  5. Scroll down to the "Bot Filtering" section and make sure the checkbox next to "Exclude all hits from known bots and spiders" is checked. This will help filter out bot traffic from organic search data.
  6. Scroll further down to the "Search Term Exclusion" section and check the box next to "Strip query parameters out of URL".
  7. Click the "Save" button to apply the changes.


Once you have enabled the organic search tracking feature and set up your Google Analytics properly, you should be able to access and analyze organic search data in the platform.
