I have looked how to find this information and all I can find is old information on how to do it which doesn't work now, such as: http://www.sebastienpage.com/2009/05/06/google-analytics-trick-see-the-full-referring-url/

I manged to find the User Defined selection in the "Behavior" section, but when I clicked on it all I get is "not set".

How can I get the full referrer URL from Google Analytics?

You question is not very clear. Hopefully this helps:

  • 'hostname' - full domain name of the requested page
  • 'request uri' - relative URL

Example: http://www.google-analytics.com/requestURL/index.html?sample=text

  • Yeah... put the two together and that's what I want.

Seems the tactic from http://www.sebastienpage.com/2009/05/06/google-analytics-trick-see-the-full-referring-url/ did work; however it only works on data after you input this filter, not on existing data.
