While the segment is hit-based, you're using the Unique Visitors metric. So AA is actually counting all visitors that had at least one hit that matches your segment definition. So it's not a problem with your segment, but rather the combination of the metrics being used that yields this result.

What is this "Download a Copy" button? I don't see it in the Adobe debugger. Or is this button on your website instead? More information about the problem you're facing, e.g. steps to reproduce, expected and actual results, screenshots, would all help in troubleshooting.

Referrers, which I assume you mean to be referrers from 3rd party sites, only make sense when used with Entry Pages, which are the first pages that people see in their visit to your website.So you can break down Entry Pages by Referrers (or Referring Domains, if you don't need the detailed referral URLs), with the Visits metric to get your report.

Your logic is not really correct.Your segment includes all pageview hits for all of the pages defined in your segment. BUT these pages are part of a visit (or visits). And the "Days Since Last Visit" is scoped to the visit.So in your screenshot, the report says "Based on the visits that included the pages in my segment, this is the number of unique visitors for each of the time periods since the previous visit."Here's a specific reading:For the date range of this dashboard, there were 32,399 uni...

@Van9Entry Pages are Visit-scoped. That is why Entry Page A had 2 Visits, whereas the others had 1 Visit. But your requirement is to report with the Unique Visitors metric. Assuming the same visitor had performed all 4 visits in your example, then Entry Page A would have been used by only that one Unique Visitor, so "1" is reported, not "2".The above only applies when a Pageview is always tracked as the first hit of any visit. In some implementations, a Custom Link could have been tracked first ...

Aha! That was the missing clue"the trouble is, we have recently started custom tracking of all our links including outbound"You should not be using Custom Link tracking with your outbound links. If you need to track custom props/eVars/events with your exit links, the trick is to set the variables as required with those links, but don't send any beacon. AA's automatic exit link tracking will take care of sending the beacon, and it will send those variables' data as well. It's a nifty trick I lear...

To answer your question: Both!Unlike GA, AA doesn't have a last-click attribution model by default. ... Well, sort of. If you use the Marketing Channel dimension by itself, then AA defaults to reporting based on last-click attribution because of legacy reasons. Which is why you should ignore the First Touch Channel and Last Touch Channel dimensions; those have been deprecated.Using the Marketing Channel dimension only, then in your metrics, e.g. Success Event 1, click its gear icon to open its s...

A segment is basically saying: "Find me all of the data points for my scope where there is at least one hit containing such-and-such specifications."Consider 2 visitors:John: visited your website 2 days ago through your campaign tracking code and converted.Mary: visited your website last month through your campaign tracking code but didn't convert, then came back to your site yesterday and converted.And let's say your report's date range covers the last 7 days.Then:Visitor-based segment would in...

I would suggest disabling anomaly detection at a Project level. Anomaly detection slows down the whole Project because AA needs to calculate the anomaly for every single datapoint. If the Project contains many tables or a few tables with many cells, the Project is not usable until AA has finished calculating all of the anomalies everywhere. So it would be great to be able to disable anomaly detection in such cases, so that the Project is usable immediately upon loading.

The short answer is: You can't.The long answer is:There are browser security restrictions that prevent messages and events from being passed between the parent frame and an IFrame, especially when the IFrame loads a page that is not in the same domain as the current web page. This is to prevent all sorts of malicious attacks that I won't get into here.The only way you can know what is happening in an IFrame that loads a third-party page is if that third-party page posts "messages" back to the pa...

An abnormal spike coupled with Typed/Bookmarked referrals (i.e. direct traffic) and also with unusually large bounce rate sounds suspiciously like bot traffic. If these are bots, then they wouldn't normally save any cookies, let alone Adobe's visitor ID cookie. As a result, every hit is essentially a "new" visit. And since bots also normally don't send any document.referrer data, AA would then classify them as Typed/Bookmarked referrals.

I guess Report Builder's not an option then.Actually, why do you want to sum up the per-minute Visits? If you need to get the number of visits between, say, 12:00am and 12:17am, you can still report on the total Visits, but apply a segment that gets the data from your particular time period. Then AA will return the sum to you, and also perform the necessary deduplication.

@DylanAm75 you can use AA's Report Builder addon for Excel to import the data directly into Excel. That will give you the same results as what you see in Analysis Workspace. Otherwise, if you're trying to do this manually, then you will never be able to get the same numbers, because AA is able to deduplicate the numbers in its backend.

You can't add up Visits (not Visitors) across time just by summing up the row numbers.Remember that a Visit comprises a series of hits over a span of time. So in your report, the same Visit could be reported at 00:00 and 00:01 and 00:02 etc. The same logic applies to Visitors.AA conveniently deduplicates these in its header sum. You can't do that deduplication in Excel.

I don't think the method will work if your IFRAME's src is "about:blank". Instead, if your IFRAME's src is "page.html", then you'd include the postMessage() in page.html.

Firstly, a click is not equal to a visitor nor a visit. The same person could click the same link more than once over a span of time.With that aside...I believe there are some redirects happening between when the user clicks the link in LinkedIn vs when your web page opens. With some browsers, those redirects unfortunately don't forward the original referrer. As a result, AA may most likely read them as not having any referrers, i.e. "Typed/Bookmarked".
