/*
 * Honestly, there is not much to using this class. It is very simple and does
 * not take much to get going. You really only need to do the following:
 */

// First include the class file.
require_once('./Keywords.php');

// Next, instantiate the object using it's "getInstance()" function
$keys = \Esi\Search\Keywords::getInstance();

// Everything else is pretty much handled for you automatically.
// Calling 'getKeys()' will automatically parse the referrer for you.
$keys = $keys->getKeys();

/*
 * The 'getKeys()' call will return an array with the following structure:
 *
 * array(3) {
 * ['referer'] => 'referrer url',
 * ['keywords'] => 'keyword',
 * ['engine'] => 'search engine'
 * }
 *
 * For example:
 *
 * array(3) {
 * ['referer']=> string(160) "https://search.yahoo.com/search;_ylc=X3oDMTFiN25laTRvBF9TAzIwMjM1MzgwNzUEaXRjAzEEc2VjA3NyY2hfcWEEc2xrA3NyY2h3ZWI-?p=test&fr=yfp-t&fp=1&toggle=1&cop=mss&ei=UTF-8"
 * ['keywords']=> string(4) "test"
 * ['engine']=> string(5) "yahoo"
 * }
 */
if (count($keys)) {
    echo
"Referring URL: $keys[referer]<br />Keywords: $keys[keywords]<br />Search Engine: $keys[engine]";
}

/*
 * The above will output something similar to:
 *
 * Referring URL: https://search.yahoo.com/search;_ylc=X3oDMTFiN25laTRvBF9TAzIwMjM1MzgwNzUEaXRjAzEEc2VjA3NyY2hfcWEEc2xrA3NyY2h3ZWI-?p=test&fr=yfp-t&fp=1&toggle=1&cop=mss&ei=UTF-8
 * Keywords: test
 * Search Engine: Yahoo
 */

// And honestly, that's really all there is to it.
