In-Site Referrers

Referring URLs are those that send you traffic. Many times, the referring URL can come from your own website. For example, when someone clicks from one page to another within your site by clicking on a link, page name or other naviagation device. This report displays the in-site URLs that referred a visitor to your site, in descending order, based on the number of times that URL was the referrer. Note: Occasionally, you may see a "No Referrer" listed. This can happen if a visitor navigates to a URL by typing it into the browser's address bar or if the website is set as the browser's homepage. In addition, there are also some scripts and privacy programs that can be used to block referral information when a visitor navigates from one website to another.

Note: This report can be added as a report item to a custom report. For more information on report items, refer to Understanding Report Items.
