paused adwords campaigns now showing traffic in Google

Having few traffic & registrations tracking issues.


I have paused my few adwords campaign more than 6 months ago, and i was using custom tracking on our local database to record registrations through each campaign. Ex. AA009

 

Suddenly after 6 months i am getting registrations through the tracking code (AA009) which i was using for paused campaigns. I understand this can be happened as people still having the old cookies in their browsers. And in Google Analytics under 'Adwords > Campaigns' a (not set) named campaign is started getting huge traffic.

 

Question is that: can i track from where is this traffic is coming Referral, Direct or Organic?

Hi Vineet,

 

To follow with Moshe, since Analytics cookie can last from 6 months upto 2 years (if I am not wrong here), so the data should be available under your Google Analytics account.

Thanks for your messages. Is there a probability that these people coming from Organic but showing under (not set) under Adwords > Campaigns?

 

I guess i figured it

Because the landing page we were using for those paused campaigns are getting spiked traffic from Organic Medium. Got this from Google Analytic under Behavior
