Hi,

 

1/ no, still the same session

 

2/ yes, separate session

 

3/ all grouped within single session as long as there is no pause longer than 30 minutes in between interactions

Thanks for the answer.

 

Now if someone comes to my website through Google organic then go to another website and from there he comes  back to my website through some paid ads within 30 minutes then GA i suppose create a new session as campaign source is changed now.

Am i right?

Correct, multiple traffic sources (within the same 30-minute window) create multiple sessions

I'm afraid that previous response was made 100% of sarcasm.

Princess Leia just died. My crankiness is dialed all the way up. Sorry about that.
