    All conversions under referral


    Hi,

    Google Analytics is showing all conversions under referral. As the conversions are because of Adwords campaign, organic search
    and social campaigns etc. Any idea how to fix this.

    Hi Jan not sure I understood your problem.

    Do you mean that your organic search data shows under referral?

    Thanks Pierre.. All conversions data from adwords, organic show under referral. Acutally analytics and adwords are linked and auto tagging is on and also adwords campaign and clicks are showing in analytics except conversions which are showing in adwords account but not in analytics. In analytics all conversions under refferal.

    Does your conversion have something to do with paypal at some point or any other external payement system?

    If this is the case the best way is to implement a payment gateway that keeps the user on your site.

    If you want to keep using paypal you should give a look at this article it explains why paypal paiement gets under referral even if the user original arrival on the site is natural results in SERP.

    You are welcome. This is a know issue but very few fixing tutorials are available online.

    There also are some companies that fix this against a monthly fee think zappier is one of them but I never tested them so this is no recommendation just saying they exist.
