Currently, the following information is provided in the daily reports: IP address; cookie ID and session ID; referring search engine; keywords used; URL tag; warning level; date and time.

"Our service can also provide valuable information to webmasters so they can analyze PPC advertising campaigns," Ward explained. "Webmasters can take the information in each report and analyze the keywords used by visitors. This provides the advantage of being able to modify ad campaigns to maximize the click-through rate."
