We have a client using Yellowbook to manage their adword campaigns. After setting up GA for them, we're not seeing adwords campaign referrers or yellowbooklead.com referrals (the domain the clicks are visibly routing through from the SERP). Is there potentially a redirect in place blocking the referer? Are they going into 'Direct Visits' in GA?

Anyone else familiar with this management method? I'm guessing they do this to force you to use their analytics package?

This is a duplicate post that has more to do with Yellowbook and analytics than with Google Adwords. I put my version of an answer over in the identical post in Tracking and Logging.
