Custom campaigns (from URL)...I'm not seeing users tracked. What am I doing wrong?

I used the Google URL builder tool to create a link to my site with parameters including Campaign Source, Medium, etc. The link works, taking me to the site. But I can't see these visits tracked in Google Analytics. Either clicks aren't being tracked, or I'm looking in the wrong place. (I'm looking in Analytics > Campaigns > All Campaigns.) I even tried a couple different IP addresseds visiting from differing geographic locations in case IPs are being filtered.

 

What am I doing wrong? I really don't want to have to create landing pages for each link I want to track.

Hi @David M

 

Can you share the landing page url here ? (you don't have to share your site url, just share the utm parameters)

 

Can you see these sessions in overall traffic ? By going to Acquisition > All traffic > Channels

 

If you are not able to see sessions their too then please make sure that GA code has been correctly implemented on your site

 

Regards

You are looking at the wrong place.
You should check All Traffic, under Acquisitions.
There you will find the campaigns listed according to source/medium.

However for AdWords campaigns, you don't need utm taggings, they are tracked by gclid. You can view it under the AdWords section under Analytics.
