|Traffic Source Conversion No Override||tdavid88||6/5/13 1:34 AM|
On Google Analytics by default conversion are attributed to the last touch traffic source. I did some research and found that if I'm setting _gaq.push(['_setCampNOKey', 'utm_nooverride']); then it will attribute the conversion to the first traffic source.
I have modified our tracking code and it looks like this:
var _gaq = _gaq || ;
ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js';
var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script'); s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);
but i did some testing yesterday and its still attribute to the last traffic source....
Is there something I did wrong? or its a bug on the system??

yes off course, I opened a new incognito window on google chrome, first search my brand name on google and clicked on one of my adwords ads browsed some pages and then opened a new tab search again my brand name and came this time from organic result, closed the other tab and browsed again another more few pages and then make the conversion.
and still google analytics attribute to the last one "google / organic" instead for google adwords....
any one can advise here? :\

afaik utm_nooverride will only preserve the actual campaign data from being overwritten by another tagged campaign
it wont prevent it being overwritten by a different untagged source such as organic or untagged referral

Every time a visitor's campaign source changes, Google Analytics opens a new visit. It’s important to point out that even if an existing visit is still open (i.e less than 30 mins have elapsed), if the campaign source changes mid-visit the first visit is closed and a new visit is opened.
