For the referrer type, why baidu and sougou were recognized as other websites?

Can I manually fix it with any settings?

Some sm.cn, quark.cn and other new rising search engines in China were also not been recognized as search engines.

@DebbyNPL - Aside from validating the search engine detection in your Marketing Channel Classification rules with Adobe, you could always use a rule to identify the Referring Root Domain

And then set the value to the Referring domain.

Hope you're able to get this figured out either way.  Best of luck!

Hi @DebbyNPL 

If the referrer data does not belong to Adobe recognized search engines or social networks, they will be collected under 'Other Web Sites'.

I suggest that you bring this up with Client Care to fix this. It could be that Adobe's internal matching algorithm for recognising Search Engines doesn't work well with non-English search engines.
