I have a flash banner on my homepage and I want to track the traffic generated from a specific link. I'm using the Google URL Builder to create a link that looks like:

http://www.example.com/?utm_source=internal&utm_medium=banner&utm_campaign=myCampaign

Does this create a discrepancy in Google Analytics now that there is a different source (internal) than the users original source?

Will this cause in issue or is there a different way I should be doing this? Any help is greatly appreciated!
