Could someone please verify when a redirect happens from Google's ad server to the landing page - is it filtered or classified in a special bucket where utm params are not shown on GA?

Hi Liz,

 

UTM params, when done properly, are never shown in the GA content reports.  You should see your traffic in whatever source medium you tagged.  For AdWords, best practice is to sync/link the AW and GA accounts and use auto tagging.  When done, the GCLID will pass all the relevant info to GA.

 

Best,
