Hi there,

 

Is it possible to give the platform Houzz its own identity on my acquisition tab > Network Referrals.

If so, please guide. It is currently being captured as a "direct" link.

 

Thank you

Hi @Harley L :-)

If your website is http then it wont be able to capture that traffic as referral traffic as the Houzz site is https which does not pass referral info to non https by default ..

Hi Bronwyn V,

 

Thank you for taking the time to reply Smiley Happy 

If I were to get the security encryption for my website; would I be able to capture Houzz and other platforms such as Instagram and twitter under the acquisition tab > Network Referrals tab?

 

At the moment, I believe the data from social media is not being captured correctly.

My goal is to drill into social media data and look at the % of people coming from social networks; analyzing bounce rate, time per sessions and other engagement indicators.

 

Thank you for your help.

Yes, that is how it would be expected to work if you update your site to https

Going off on the secured to non-secured referrer loss basis and my website being non-secured, how come GA is able to pick up Pinterest analytics to my website?

 

Bronwyn, do you think this something Google Analytics 360 can help with?
