      @ the OP

      Since you said that you�re seeing a 100% bounce rate on the inbound display
      traffic yet GA is classifying the conversions as �direct,� it sounds to me
      like the referrer is getting lost during Flash instantiation.

      Are you sure that all other referral sources (such as traffic coming from
      non-banner sources such as organic search or via links from third party
      sites) are coming in properly for these Flash event conversions? Is there
      any conditional logic in the code on your page or in your Flash object (such
      as a 302 redirect) that results in the visitors referred from the banners
      getting different code?

      Have you set up Flashvars? See

      Thanks Chris.
      I posted a comment yesterday but it seems it got losted somewhere.
      anyway, I was saying that this a litle different case than adwords
      conversions. In adwords you don`t have to tag banner or add an specific
      conversion tracking code.
      In this case I think the problem is that the pagetracker flash event (we
      used GA for Adobe CS3) is not recognizing the utm parameter on the URL. so
      conversions arenot attributed to the corresponding source (i.e the banner)
      but to direct visits.
      Noq the question is. why? how we could solve this issue?
