    Can some one please hint me how AWStats able to detect the keywords used in search? When the site is found via google for example, the link pointed to the site doesn't contain any keyword info. Yet, AWStats knows what was used to find the site.

      Well, awstats is not a magical programm. Have a look at the logfile close to the first hit from the SE. Somewhere you will find a line containing smth like this:

      If you have a closer look at it then you will discover that the query "test word" resulted in the hit.
