Google Referrals Defined in Google Analytics

Discussion in 'Google Analytics' started by Darrin, Nov 3, 2006.

    I've looked but can't seem to find an answer to this. What is the different between this referrals that come up in analytics:

    news.google.com[referral]
    google.com[referral]
    google[organic]

    I am pretty sure that the Google News referral is when somone clicks on an article in Google News without searching for it.

    What is the referral when someone searches google news and clicks on a link to my page? Is it the same referral I get when someone searches regular google? Is it google[Organic]?
    SEMrush
    And then what is google.com[referral]?

    Thanks,
    -Darrin

    Google organic is a visit from the SERPs
    Google Referral is a visit from the personalised Google home page or Google Reader (and maybe other services)

    If you mean showing full URL for referral from other sites (not Google) :

    Click on the red button on the left of the referral
    Click on the third item of the list and click on "content" :
