To find out what are the keywords that bring you a visitor you need to
analyze either referer field or query params.

1. Query: You may analyze query string to find out the keywords. In
this case you need to specify the URL for your landing page as

+ You don't need to know the format of the referer field
- You cannot put more then one keyword for you ad or you won't know
what keyword the visitor has typed.

2. Referer: You may extract keywords from the referer HTTP header. I
am not sure that the format of the referer field is documented
somewhere but you may analyze it and find out its structure.

+ You may have more than one keywords per ad
- Need to find out structure of the referer; the structure have to be
checked from time to time as it might be changed

3. The combination of the aboves method.

+ The chance to extact inappropriate keyword is low
- Hard to maintain
