One of my sites has recently been included in Google News and I am seeing a spike in traffic. However, when I try to analyze the source of the traffic via referrals, Google News traffic number is tiny (news.google).
I am seeing increases in both organic and direct traffic channels as well as my queries and impressions in GWT. I am working with a 3 week sample so this is not a random event. Increases are steady.
Could some of the Google News traffic be placed under organic or direct in my GA reports.
