Referral Exclusion List not working - and is there a way to see historical source data?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi all, 

 

I've set up referral exclusions for various payment gateways that were coming up as referral domains, e.g.

 

secure6.arcot.com

secure7.arcot.com

payments.securetrading.net 

 

etc. 

 

but secure6.arcot.com (and similar domains with different numbers) are still showing up as referrers even though they're in the exclusion list. 

 

I obviously want to correctly attribute the sources for conversions as we need to justify our social campaign's ROI so this is confusing. 

 

Also, is there a way to see the historical source data from when before the domains were added to the exclusion list? I know for a fact that our social campaign has driven more traffic and sales but can't prove it! 

 

Any help greatly appreciated! 

Tess
