HTML Form Submission Not Passing HTTP Referer On Analytics

I just noticed that a bunch of 'results' pages on our site that shall not appear unless someone clicks on one of the 'submit' buttons on our site are showing up as the landing page for direct traffic.

I believe an important reason for this is because the form submit button (input type="submit") is not passing http_referer information. Could someone help me out with how this can be fixed?

Thanks for the help.

If the 'results' pages are showing up as a landing page and as direct traffic, it's very likely that the page where the user is submitting from does not have the proper Analytics tracking script running on it. I would double check that your tracking script is on all of your pages and that the script is consistent throughout your site.

The other potential explanation for this would be your 'results' pages are on a separate subdomain/domain and your tracking script doesn't take this into consideration.

If this isn't the case, let me know and I would be willing to look into it for you.
