I am currently trying to pull in data from Bing and Yahoo ads into GA. I found and article by "Analytics SEO" and have successfully done it but its not perfect. Let me walk you through the steps and if someone knows where I went wrong please help.


1. Tag URL's (?utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term={QueryString}&utm_campaign=Bing+CPC+Campaign): Done

2. Created a separate profile in analytics. : Done

3. Create Filter (This is where i think i need help).

     a. Custom Filter >Advanced

     b. Field A -> Extract B: Campaign Source: bing (same as in query string)

     c. Field B -> Extract B: Referral: https?://([^/]+) (no idea about regular expressions just copied it)

     d. Output to -> Constructor: Campaign Source: $A1, $B1

     e. Field A Required: Yes, Field B Required: Yes, Override Output Field: Yes, Case-sensitive: No

Those are the steps i took.

Here lies the problem the traffic section should give me Source / Medium that looks like:

yahoo / cpc

bing / cpc

google / cpc

What I get is:

, www.bing.com / cpc

, search.yahoo.com / cpc

google / cpc

Someone please tell me where I went wrong.
