Full Referral URLs in Google Analytics

Have you ever wanted to find out the exact page URL that referral traffic has come to your website from?

Just follow the three simple steps below in order to achieve this in Google Analytics!

STEP 1: Set Up a New Filter in Your Google Analytics Settings

STEP 2: Wait For Data

Next, you’ll need to wait for some data to build up as this filter is not retroactive.

STEP 3: Voila!

After a day or so, check back on your top referring pages by clicking through to Visitors > User Defined on your left hand analytics panel (as it appears in June 2011).

You should be seeing the full referral URLs now:

Feel free to leave a comment if you were successful in setting up your filter. Otherwise, let us know if you need a hand!
