Wordpress Search related help!

Hello!

As title says, it's an issue related to Wordpress that i cannot seem to find a fix.

  1. I need some plugin or some way to monitor the number of searches and what people search on my Wordpress based website. In that tiny small 'search box', would be also amazing if there is a plugin to show most searched keywords. Kinda like Google?

  2. How to trick the Wordpress search once showing results to show them in an random order rather than newest. Can't find this either. Always showing the newest articiles while i want random order.

If anyone is familiar enough, thanks in advance for the help!

    Google the terms:

    Google custom search for WordPress website (and how to implement it).

    For search term analysis, Google Analytics offers it (Behaviour -> Site Search).

    For setting it up, go to property -> View Settings - Query parameter (for WP search it's usually "s", while Google custom search will use "q").

    This is more of a pointing in the right direction, if you get stuck, I'd be happy to help.
    Will probably write a tutorial in the next few months if all goes as planned.

    Matomo (previously known as Piwik). It's not a plugin, it's a free self-hosted alternative to Google Analytics.

    It shows searches, keywords, trends. Really easy to use. It picks up WordPress automatically, no need to setup anything.
