Landing page entrances with no source / medium data

Can anyone tell me what it means when a landing page doesn't have any source / medium data to go with it?


I've filtered for a particular page on my site in the standard landing page report, and it shows 22 entrances for the time period selected. I added the "source / medium" secondary dimension to that filter, but then all the data goes to "0" and there's no source / medium data at all. I tried each one by itself (i.e. just "source" and just "medium" as secondary dimensions), and I get the same problem. This is not the same data with one row that says "(not set)". This is absolutely no data at all.


For a moment, I thought it might be bot spam, but a lot of that is showing up as "referral" medium with different sources.


We have a particularly large site, so we often have reports with partial data, but I would assume that with such a focused report, I would get all the relevant data.


Any ideas why source / medium as a secondary dimension zeros out data for a landing page?

if you choose hostname as secondary dimension it shows your domain?
