Hello veryone,

we have a problem with the total number of data.

Only if I mark the numbers and then select as "Run selected Elements", then the sum of the numbers is correct.

Why is data not correct ?

Hi there,

This is because of duplication. If you visitor arrives on Paid Search, then leaves the site and looks for a discount code, returning shortly after via an affiliate site they will have only had 1 visit, however their visit will have had 2 marketing channels.

I suspect if you look at the visits metrics against the day/week in question it will show 648k.

Thanks

Dave

This is a key difference between the Adobe and Google platforms, within GA the presence of a new UTM parameter instantiates a new visit- which is not true in Adobe.
