Can't see Campaign data in Google analytics from UTM tracking data url

Hi There I have created a number of UTM tracking data urls using the Google Analytics campaign builder. However when I go to my Google Analytics the campaign data does not show. Here are the url's I created;

 

Tracking code 1

http://www.88travancore.com.au/landing/?utm_source=Domain&utm_medium=Banner&utm_campaign=88Travancor...

 

You can see this live banner at the following address: https://www.domain.com.au/sale/travancore-vic-3032/?ssubs=1

 

Tracking code 2

http://www.88travancore.com.au/landing/?utm_source=Domain&utm_medium=Portal&utm_campaign=88Travancor...

 

You can see the link by visiting this link and clicking 'View website': https://www.domain.com.au/project/2257/88-travancore-travancore-vic

 

Thanks for your help on this I am stumped as to why we can't see this data in analytics.

Hi Theo, thank you so much for replying. We actually worked out that the original Google Code placed on the site was implemented incorrectly. We did a gloabl replace with updated code and we are now recieveing the required data within Analytics.

Hi Peter,

 

You could filter for this source in your Source/Medium reports or go to your campaign reports to see this as well. 

 

Have you tried this?

 

Best,

Hi Peter,
It was good to see what was wrong with the G code implementation. I have the same problem as above. The Analytics code is on the website. It tracks well. I was able to see the UTM tracking on Real Time. But when I go to Acquisition- Campaigns I see only old campaigns and that is all. I tried the filters, dates, sources....nothing works.
Thanks

Hi there Huelya, can you give me your website address so I can review the implementation. I suspect that you are looking in the wrong area, but I want to be sure the implementation is right first.

 

Can you also send me the url of the file you tagged.

Hi Peter. Thanks for agreeing to help. Here is the URL with UTMs too -

Hi Huelya,

 

You wont see that in the campaign report because you are not using the campaign parameter of utm_campaign=  If you add a campaign param, it will populate there and is a best practice.

 

You should also see this in your Source Medium report as FB / BA

 

By the way, using BA is an unexpected as GA will not know what "bucket" to put your traffic for the channel reports.  Facebook should typically be either set to social or cpc depending on whether it's a paid post or not.  You can use whatever you like but then you'll need to change your default channel settings to account for it. 

 

Lastly, utm params are typically lowercase - not that it matters, but just be consistent either way.

 

Best,

Hi guys,

 

I have a similar issue. Google Analytics just won't pick anything on Facebook. 

 

Domain: www.ag-grid.com

 

Tracking Code 1

Destination URL:  http://ag-grid.com/

URL Parameters: ?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=carousel&utm_campaign=impressions

 

Tracking Code 2

Destination URL: https://www.ag-grid.com/

URL Parameters: ?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=carousel

 

I'm losing data on a lot of clicks on Facebook. Adwords doesn't seem to have an issue, my PPC and Display Ads are being picked up. 

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

 

Thanks
