GA AdWords report, when renaming medium in view settings[ Edited ]
January 2017 - last edited January 2017
When Google Analytics account is linked to AdWords account - how this report recognizes traffic from paid adwords and show all data in those report? I thought that it recognizes it by ?gclid=XXX.
But it looks like it doesn't. For easier and faster analyzes, i decided to rename medium based on campaign name. So google / cpc stay to all Paid Search activities, but cpc rename to gsp, youtube or display if it's any of those activities. I also still see campaign names as they are in AdWords account.
But now i see that in my adwords report there is only google / cpc = Paid Search (in my case) campaigns. I assume, google / display network medium doesn't apply the report rules.
So the question is - can i somehow manage AdWords report rules? If not, does it recognizes AdWords activities only if source / medium is equal to "google / cpc" or maybe it works also with Regex? And those those rules apply to all source / medium, or only medium?
