29574RE: [webanalytics] Site Catalyst 15 - Wonky Segments
- Sep 13, 2012Linda,
The trick is that, in Omniture, a single visit can have multiple referrers.
The truth is that, technically, every single page you browse to on your own
site has a referring value-but Omniture has applied a list of Internal
Filters to keep your own domain values out of the Referrers reports. But if
a user leaves your site, then returns within 30 minutes via a link, the new
Referrer value will show up in your reports-even though it's in the middle
of a visit.
Hope that helps-

I always get great information when I ask this group, so I'm hoping one of
you smarty pants can help answer what is probably a really simple issue.
I'm just starting with Omniture Site Catalyst and would like to view traffic
using segments. There is a segment called "Visits from Facebook" and another
called "Visits from Social Sites."
However, when I segment using either of these on the Referring Domains
report, the resulting dataset still includes referring domains that are not
Facebook or not social sites, respectively.
I've tried this in two different client accounts and have had the same
I'm sure I'm missing something. Can anyone please tell me where I'm going
Thank you in advance for your time!
