PHP:Catching keyword from search engine

Good day everyone, In this article we will learn how to catch information from “HTTP_REFERER” function such as, referer info, keyword info, etc. From some search engine using PHP snippet. This script might usefully when you want to analyze your keyword and referer statistic. Last night I was searching in WP plugin for this script but I didn’t found one really good.

class search_keywords

var $search_engine;

$this->sep = (eregi(‘(\?q=|\?qt=|\?p=)’, $this->referer)) ? ‘\?’ : ‘\&’;

function get_keys()
{
if (!empty($this->referer))
{
