I put a custom URL on a print ad - how do I see who arrived at my page via that URL?

I recently advertised in print, using a custom URL in the format domain.org/prize-advertiser, where domain is my company, prize is what I'm advertising and the advertiser is the print magazine the ad was in. The main thing is, being non-clickable, it was a text change only, so no utm etc.

 

How can I see who has arrived at my page by entering the custom URL? I assume it's under direct traffic, but is there a way to tease it out?

Hi Adam.

Look to Behavior >Site content  > Landing Pages report. Your pages should be there if not redirected by your site in some way

Hi,

 

You can also track it as a custom campaign, when the user arrives to your site through the custom URL, redirect them to a utm tagged URL on your site.
