Customize referral source url pattern?

Follower ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello,

I drive traffic to my website from two main sources. I can identify them by a custom parameter named "b".

If visitor arrived to my website using a url like domain.com/?b=1 , then it's the first source, while ?b=2 means second source.

Therefore, How can I tell GA to treat these two sources separately? (as I'm not using the UTM paramerters).

 

Thanks

GA uses the domain as the referral source unless there's no UTM paramater appended to the referring URL. Unfortunately, there's no way in the free GA to use any other query string parameter than UTMs to track the referral sources.
