I have a site (site A) which used to get allot of traffic from a 3rd party site industry niche portal website (site B), both sites used to be HTTP. Traffic was viewable as referral traffic in Google analytics for site A.
Site B implemented HTTPS, and shortly after i implemented HTTPS on site A, via Lets Encrypt.
Site B has a management dashboard where i can see supposed clicks through to site A. But when i look in Google Analytics for Site A, there is no referral traffic from Site B.
The link on Site B to Site A is using the HTTPS url.
Site B dose not seem to be passing the traffic through a 3rd party tracking URL. The outgoing link is as follows :
<a href="https://www.site-a.com/" compid="Profile_Website" target="_blank" class="proWebsiteLink" data-trackinglink="https://www.site-b.com/trk/aHR9sbGlkZXNpZ28udWsv/2b8e469e409a9f/c5c9bc2ef49cabd5" rel="nofollow">

Any ideas why i cant see the referral traffic in Google Analytics ?
