Hi There,


I had a query, there has been no ad sense running for our website, please look below and let me know how do I identify if the following visits are driven through adwords or organic searches or the exact source and medium for these;


I find like the above is from ad sense, though as already mentioned there is no ad sense running, so is there a way to distinguish the above as to which medium did the users arrived through?


Thanks in Advance!

Hi there,


You can do this seamlessly using GA. I'd recommend reading this third party article to understand traffic acquisition. You can also post this on the GA forum to get a detailed solution.

Hi Vijaylakshmi K,

It is difficult to distinguish between organic and paid traffic based on the referrer. It's just not reliable. The best way to detect AdWords traffic is to use auto-tagging on your account, then look for the presence of the gclid name/value pair in the query string. If it's there, it's an AdWords click.

Best of Luck!
