Hi Community Members,

We have properly linked Adwords Account with Analytics Account.

Data showing under Adwords section is reporting correctly :

 When I go to channels section its not showing data properly.Some adwords traffic is counted as others  and paid search .When I drilled down using campaign as dimension , their corresponding adwords  campaign is showing.My question is why their is no proper channel grouping like display should go into display and adwords search traffic should go in to paid search .Why its showing (Other) channel as display and search campaigns.

Hi Anil,

 

For some reason, google analytics does not show all of the Adwords Display campaigns data under “Display” channel grouping.

 

I had a similar problem before and I fixed it using the customized channel grouping in GA.

 

So probably you can customize the “Display” channel grouping to show the data under correct channel as shown below.

Unfortunately, this will permanently change how only new traffic is classified. Historical data is not affected.

 

You can refer below for more details-

Hope this helps

Hi Anil,

 

Google creates a rolled up entry (other) in analytics based on some system limitation.
