Tracking traffic sources
Why does google analytics gives you a source you can't track?

Hi there,

I use google analytics and under traffic sources it usually gives me Direct traffic, Search traffic and referring sites traffic.

However, last week it started showing another source labeled 'other', the problem is I cannot click on it and find out where this traffic is comming from.

Has anyone had a similar experience, or has any ideas of what it could be?

Thanks in advance for your help in this matter.

Dina.
