When I'm in analytics I sometimes get a referral from a forum, something like:


Then when I click on it, it gives me a page like:


Is there any way to get it to return the topic ID so I can click on it and see which topic it is? At the moment I have to register, and run a search. Can be very slow.

Can you please post a screen shot of the analytics referrer.. so we can see the full details? – Pure.Krome Sep 1 '11 at 0:49

If you need the full referrer link in Google Analytics, you can add a custom filter to view the complete URL.

If the referrer link however needs authentication, you will need to register to access that page.
