Why Is My Adwords Paid Search Showing Up in (Other)?

When I view the Acquisition->Overview report and click on (Other) I then go to the report that lists the sources and Google is listed there.  Why isn't it showing up in the Paid Search section as I would expect (and it was doing in the past, so I'm not sure what changed)?

 

Thanks!

Is your Google AdWords integrated to Analytics? If yes, and your campaigns are auto tagged, this would show right.

I think I know where this is going... so I am using UTM parameters:

?utm_source=google&utm_campaign=my-campaign-name&utm_medium=adwords-text

 

Should I not be doing that?  Or should I just leave utm_source out?  Or leave them all out since my Adwords and Analytics are connected.

 

Thanks!

You should use auto-tagging in order to get rid of this problem.

Manual tagging is not necessary in most cases. 

Auto-tagging automatically imports AdWords data into Analytics. Combining AdWords data with the rich post-click information provided by Analytics allows you to see what happened on your site after people clicked on your ads.

When you enable auto-tagging, a parameter called gclid is added to your landing page URL when a user clicks over to your site from an ad. For example, if your site is www.mysite.com, when a user clicks on your ad it appears in the address bar as:

 


To enable/disable auto-tagging:

Sign in to your AdWords account.
Click the gear icon, and select Account settings.
Make sure you're on the Preferences tab, and click Edit in the Tracking section.
Select (enable) or clear (disable) the Auto-tagging checkbox.
Click Save changes.
