No sessions at all recorded for Display Ad's

Follower ✭ ☆ ☆

Hi there,

 

We have two Display Ad's running and for both of them there are 0 sessions recorded in Analytics.

 

One of them has been running for over two weeks and has over 15k clicks, the other has been running for a day and has around 450 clicks. 

 

We have moved the Analytics code in the <head> tag yesterday mid day.

 

What other reasons could there be ? 

 

Thanks for your help!

Hi
There seems to be a client side redirection from www.elitemodellook.com to http://www.elitemodellook.com/int/en/home/index.htm which is erasing the original source from which user and for every visit your source will be "http://www.elitemodellook.com/" and medium will be referral.

Ideally you should fix the redirection to a 301 but if you cant do that you can just change the landing page to http://www.elitemodellook.com/int/en/home/index.htm which should solve your issues.

Hope this helps

Have you linked your Adwords & Analytics account?

Hi Peter,

Have you linked the adwords account with the GA account.
First you need to link both the accounts.

Access the GA account with admin access, go to the admin tab >> within the property select adwords linking >> setup adwords linking enabling all website data and auto-tagging to get the adwords data in the GA account.

Hi Ujjwal,

Yes, we have. The Search Ad's are showing up in Analytics as well as their Sessions. The Display Ad's are showing up in Analytics too, but record no Sessions.

Thanks!

Is the gclid test, the same as the Google Tag Manager assistant? I have checked the landing page with that one and because of that we moved the tag into the header already..

Thanks for your help.

Hi there,

I did the gclid test on the main landing page and Ii the Chrome Developer Tools it shows me an 307 Internal Redirect Error for the analytics.js.

Could this have something to do with the missing Sessions ?
