Referral traffic

Hi, 

I am not sure if I am doing something wrong, or missing something but I would like to check how many clicks we got from a Newsletter sent by a third party (we were featured in the newsletter). However, when I check in "Acquisition - All traffic - referrals" our figures are completely different than the figures sent by the third party. 

 

Is there another way of looking at these figures? 

 

Many Thanks, 

Referral traffic

it wouldn't be an easy task unless the link in the newsletter was properly tagged with utm parameters.

If it was a specific page on your site that was linked in email I'd check for this page in landing pages as secondary dimension in referrals report.
