Duplicated Referrals

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi everyone,


I'm having some trouble figuring something out.

We have an AD (not Google Adwords) on with this url:


When I go to Analytics>Acquisition>Source/Medium, I see this:






I'm not sure if it's duplicated data or if it's sending the traffic in different directions. 

Why would GA separate it?


Would really appreciate any help or insight into why this is happening.


Thank you!

It seems that you have an untagged link to your site so appears in GA as a normal referral. Hope this helps.

Thank you, now I understand this.
Follow up if I may,

In those tagged URLs, when I try to find the Referral Path it says (not
set) unlike the untagged ones that show me the url from where they came

Is there a way to configure tagged URLs to show the Referral Path?
