Hello, I was a new comer to google analytics and thus would hope to try on how customer web interaction affect the figure in the report:

 

used Demo GA account: 

https://analytics.google.com/analytics/web/?utm_source=demoaccount&utm_medium=demoaccount&utm_campai...

 

Here is my trial steps:

Go to search engine 'Bing' ->search the keywords "google merchandise store hk' -> click into the website

 

Expected result:

On the demo GA account, under real time report (traffic source), it should reflect my web footprints (e.g. in this case, Bing)

 

Actual result:

It does not. So did I test step is wrong in this trial? Thanks for your advisory.

Nigel do you have any filters setup that would prevent traffic from your network from being displayed.

Thanks Brian, the filters on this report is in default. And should no restriction on my current company network.

Also I did the same trial using my cell phone (to ensure I was using data outside company wifi/network). 

 

Just wonder if your side is fine (i.e. real time traffic is reflected according to your web footprint) when using this demo account? Thanks Smiley Happy

What does you "Include Hostname" filter include and is it applied to your demo view. When I have flacky issues as a general rule I remove any filters I have applied to the test view I am trying to debug so I am only looking at raw unfiltered data and see if that straightens things out.
