I am attempting to set up our Marketing Channel definitions and am not getting the Organic channel to populate. I was looking for 'campaign code is not set' AND search engine exists. This rule was prior to the rule to catch any remaining traffic with a referring domain into "referring domain'. From looking at our clickstream data it seems that the only traffic making into the Organic channel are those with the old-style referrers that include query string parameters like "https://www.google.com/search?q=what+are+mainstay+suites&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-b-1-m". Why would that be?
I updated the rule to not even care about the campaign code since that traffic should be caught earlier and only look to see if Search Engine exists and I still have the same issue.
A rule that is lower in the processing takes all referrers and puts it into referring domains where the bulk of our 'google.com' and 'bing.com' referrers are going rather than being captured into the "Organic" marketing channel. What do I need to do differently?
