Yes, the source is the source. Check whether your adwords is linked to your GA account, and being tagged, if you're not using utm tags, allow automatic tagging.


Yes, when you're looking at your events report, just add source / medium as a secondary dimension.

You can also get more exact information on the source / medium by using utm tags, then you can name the campaign, and look for that rather than the source. That way you can distinguish bewteen, for example, any variations in ad content.

  • thanks, i also found a source second dimension. Not sure if what I see as ( direct ) is not coming from Ads. Would it keep the source if the user browse other pages before clicking?
