Feedly-Referrers shows up as direct

Hi all,

 

for some reason is the traffic that comes e.g. from feedly showing in my google analytics account as direct traffic. 

 

Of course it would be helpful to see what part of the traffic comes from blog readers like feedly and what really is direct traffic. Can anybody give me a hint, what the reason could be for this issue?

 

The blog is this one: www.lowhangingfruits.de

 

Please kindly help. Thanks a lot in advance.

 

Best, Nils

this reason looks fitting: 

  • The site that is linking to you is using HTTPS, and you are using HTTP

Thanks a lot. I had actually seen that article but I had overseen that particular reason. Thanks for your help!
