How Can I Avoid Duplicate Campaign Names in Analytics > Acquisition > Campaigns > All Campaigns[ Edited ]
March 2016 - last edited March 2016
The issue I have is using a UTM link to track a campaign which results in duplicate campaign names in the Analytics > Acquisition > Campaigns > All Campaigns report.
Here is a working example:
Campaign Source: Twitter
Campaign Medium: Social
Campaign Name: have+you+seen+the+click+turn
Resulting URL using Google URL builder:
I then input this into Buffer which shortens the URL (although I have tried direct and the same problem occurs).
Then in the Analytics > Acquisition > Campaigns > All Campaigns report, the campaign name is duplicated as follows:
have you seen the click turn
have you seen the click turn/
have you seen the click turn/?mob=1/
Why is this happening and is there a solution? I am assuming it is something to do with visitors arriving on the website page and it having a different URI depending on how they arrive there, e.g. with a trailing slash or I assume if they come from a mobile device with the mob string which it is then - for some reason - adding to the campaign name.
If anyone has a solution to avoid this and have only 1 result it would be helpful.
