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?

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

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.
