  • Hello as you can see on this picture in last two days i have a huge increase in " / referral". I have also small drop in "google/organic". I think some part of my organic traffic is missguided to referral. How can i fix it? Or do you know what i can do to avoid this?

Hey there Tadeusz, 


The referral traffic you're getting looks like it's organic traffic from google Indonesia. Now this traffic could be identified as referral traffic for several reasons: 

1) Sometimes it truly is identified as referral traffic. Google states that it can mark certain traffic from Google as referral when it comes from internal forums or other Google sources that are not search. 

2) Your Google Analytics code could be out of date. Make sure you're using the most up-to-date script possible. 

3) Try visiting your website via organic search and look at your real-time data and look at the source. Does it say organic or referral? 


Let me know how it goes!
