This is my number one traffic source/medium: propupdate / (not set).  Would anyone be able to explain this and offer a solution to have better data quality than this?

Hi Ben,


Looks to me like you have some bad custom campaigns (or spam).  That is someone is using utm params but is not passing medium.

Hi Theo, 


Your response makes sense but I have not ran any custom campaigns aimed at analyzing traffic from different channels to a landing page. It is just traffic in general. I have a hard time believing google not recognizing that many sources.
