Hi,

We have partnered with a blogger to create content regarding our services. It was then posted just October 11 and we are acquiring traffic and conversions from it. But the problem is, I cannot find the data from Google analytics and when going to Acquisition > All Traffic > Referrals - the blogger's site is not appearing so we can't tract how effective the campaign was.

All your answers are appreciated to help me resolve this issue.

Thanks!

By the way, upon investigation, the referral traffic was then detected as direct traffic, why was it then?

Follow up question: If ever we were to track referral traffic, can we do it on Google Tag Manager?
