|Tracking first attribution with &utm_nooverride=1||tina11111||8/29/11 9:36 AM|
To track first referrer in Google Analytics, I've read you can track the first referrer with modification in the ga.js code or by appending utm_nooverride=1 to the end of all destination URLs. Considering the destination URLs are generally on an external site the client doesn't own, he can't use utm_nooverride=1 unless it's an internal link on his website, right? So, what's the best way to track first referral?
Also, is there any negatives to switching to first referrer?

utm_nooverride=1 is used to prevent analytics from overwriting campaign data such as for adwords or tagged campaigns
utm_nooverride=1 wont stop analytics from overwriting the campaign data if a visitor returns via an untagged referral link or organic search
The new beta interface now provides multichannel funnels which you may want to have a look at

I just looked at both articles & think the 2nd one might be helpful. (I haven't been on the new beta version yet.)
