We have a property with cross domain tracking. 

Eg. we have two domains, and For a user to get to, the user must click a link in

When an user clicks this link, there is a window pop up informing the user is redirected from to because of this all the traffic to is been tracked as direct traffic.


Even though and are both tracked in the same GA property view with right filters and referral exclusions.


Let me know if you need more information to help me with this issue.

Hey Navi, 


Google Analytics allows for cross domain (site linking) tracking and treat it as the same property. The following link should help you set it up, its super easy and just requires a minor modification to your Analytics code.


Let me know if this solves your problem!
