    Just to clarify, are you saying that individual visits are being logged as all 3 sources (direct/social/referral) simultaneously? Or that they are being inconsistently categorized as any of the above? Also, you mention that it's from your PPC campaign to your landing page to your site - what/who do you use for your landing pages? (The reason I ask is because Weebly/blogger etc often show up as "social" in GA, and subpages thereof will show as "referral", Tumblr often does similarly as tumblr.com (social) or t.umblr.com (referral)

    Oh...That's not a setting that we have any control over lol...how Google chooses to categorize that is totally on Google - unless you specifically link your ad campaigns to your GA....Which PPC Network was your campaing with anyway? Adwords, BingAds?

    This is strange. I think the analytics agency that is helping me, are offering a free Google Analyitcs audit so you could try it, as I am sure it will reveal why this happens. A friend of mine also used that audit for their website and he said that the results were impressive.
