It seems that google images is not detected correctly anymore. Maybe their URL scheme changed, or there is a regression in Piwik.

In what way?

I can confirm that Google Images is not detected if you do a search for an image which then gets viewed in a frame (the URL is "www.google.com/imgres?", search parameter "q").

In core/DataFiles/SearchEngines.php Google Images is defined with:

// Google Images
                'images.google.com'                     => array('Google Images', 'q', 'images?q={k}'),

I can't say for sure that "images?" isn't used anymore, but we should definetely add 'imgres?q={k}'. The big problem here is that the subdomain has switched from images.google.com to www.google.com.

Images is still used. As far as I can see the only difference is the change from images.google.com to google.com.

Here is an old referrer that works with piwik:


and here is the new url not working with piwik:
