It looks like there are many metrics regarding search count. We are looking for the number of unique search terms entered in a search box by users for a certain period of time. Which one should we look at?
I'm not 100% clear which metric in particular you are looking for, but for the overall number of individual user generated searches on your community I would rather take from LSI's "Search" report:
If you are looking for the number of searches per visitor / visit / member, I'm afraid there's currently no report for that. You have to hone in on that via calculating averages of attempted searches and the LSI Traffic or Members reports.
