I'm setting up Google Analytics Site Search in my profile, and wondering if I need to add all the query parameters of the search (up to 5 of them) or just the parameter that contains the user's search; I can't really imagine what Google would do with the other search parameters, but they're Google so who knows what use they might have for them.

The documentation isn't real clear on this...support.google.com/analytics/bin/… – leeand00 Jul 2 '12 at 17:41

Just the parameter that contains the user's search. When it says up to 5 parameters it means that if you have several search mechanisms and they use different parameters for the user's query then you can put all those in.
