How do I make a report by referrer domain?

[ Edited ]

I'm new to GA and GAW. I have Google Analytics and Google Adwords set up on one web URL. I'm trying to make a custom report on Analytics to show the number of clicks for each referring domain or referring URL. Adwords doesn't seem to have anything like this so I'm using GA.

 

So on my custom report, what would my Metric group be and what would my Dimension Drilldown be? I set up one Metric group of Clicks, and one Dimension of Referral Path and that gave me no records. The filter I have on this report has filtered out bots.

 

On the report I get a message like "There is no data for this view."

 

Does anyone have any hints for me? Thank you.

Chuck,

If you are referring to the domain on which your GDN ads received the click the referrer will always be Google.

You can however, use value track to pass the domain on which the ad appeared:

That said, if you have your accounts linked, then this information is already available as you drill into the display targeting report in GA.
