trended view of Referrer Type Report

Avatar

The default view of Referrer Type is a pie chart. I really need to see this data trended over time. That would help me answer questions like "is my search engine traffic increasing over time?" Currently I have to pull this information into excel and manually create that report.

Absolutely agree. Although I see less value in the referrer type with the advent of the "marketing channels" reports, I could still see use in this, and could never figure out why I needed to use ExcelClient to pull this data.

I'll add my voice to this.  Currently I build a trend view in Excel.  The benefit of this vs the marketing channel is for clients that don't or cannot setup to use that report.  It's a more automated solution.

Absolutely agree as well. You can get trended data for referring domains, but not referring types? Doesn't make sense - need this.

 

Thanks,

Google Analtyics does it and it's great. I have NO IDEA why I can't trend this report. And my new manager doesn't either...Please, please add this.
