UA Goals for Adwords and Organic tagged as Referrals

I transitioned a client to Universal Analytics.

 

On the date that happened Goals for Adwords and Organic are no longer being tracked but have been allocated to Referrals as that has spiked by the same amount. 

 

Traffic reports for Adwords and Organic still look ok no drop off.

 

The Goals are just targeting a regular expression in a url - nothing fancy.  (no events as Goals)

 

Any ideas?   

 

UA and Adwords are still linked.

 

thanks in advance

Hi Peter,

 

Did you try testing some of the goals from your end i.e. searching for your website organically and then completing a goal and then reviewing your analytics to see where has it attributed the goal?

 

For more insights, I would encourage you to post this over dedicated Analytics forum. This is the link: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!forum/analytics

 

I hope that helps somewhere!

Just a thought, when they were transitioned to UA, was the client's domain added to the Web Property's Referral Exclusion List?

Hi Emma - Not yet - let me know if you do. Currently checking implementation for missing code.
