Google Analytics with Google News
I have a website that is indexed in Google News and am having trouble determining if the traffic I am receiving on Google Analytics is representative of the traffic I am receiving from Google News.
Anybody have any insight? When I look at the "Real-Time Overview" section, it show almost no traffic from Google News, but I have a hard time believing that I am getting no traffic, especially since my Wordpress Panel is showing 50-100 views for each article.
Any help is appreciated!
Re: Google Analytics with Google News
it depends on the type of Google News traffic - do you mean traffic from news.google.com directly? Do you see news.google.com in your referral report?
If you mean Google News links in ordinary Google search-result pages things get more tricky. You might get some insights from the 'ved' parameter in Google search result URLs evaluating the full referrer in an Analytics view filter .
But I totally agree that comprehensive tracking info for traffic arriving from Google Products besides standard search is definitely missing in Google Analytics ever since!
