 I've used UTM in my new campaign, then ( after i saw distorted report in GA ) i turned it off, but the report still shows LINK and UTM instead of showing just a keyword.

How can i fix this, so i can see just a keyword..
I'd appreciate any of your help greatly

Hi Seraven,

 

Generally you should not use utm params for AdWords.  Instead, link the two and use Auto-tagging.   UTM params should be used for all other marketing touch points.

 

Once the data is in GA, it's always there - including any subsequent direct visits.   There is no way to remove it (short of deleting the property) once processed.

 

Best,

Weird thing is that i had UTM in other campaigns and i don't have any report distorted, so the only thing i can do now is to relaunch campaign?

It's hard to tell with all the redacting, but if it's AdWords, link the accounts, use auto-tagging and remove the utm params.
