Google Analytics by Yoast
WP directory showing as refferal source in Google analytics (1 post)

    Been using Google Analytics for wordpress for a while now on the charity website I run.

    We have recently allowed wordpress to take over the root domain, per these instructions: http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory#Using_a_pre-existing_subdirectory_install

    So now, our site appears as http://www.example.com in the address bar instead of wp.example.com, great!

    The only problem is that since the change, wp.example.com and example.com are showing up in google analytics as a referal source.

    I'm guessing this is technically correct, if people have wp.example.com or example.com bookmarked and then click through to anything else, it's a referal....sort of...

    although really it's direct.

    Or maybe the redirect/referal is happening before the analytics code can load?

    Any suggestions as to how this can be fixed would be greatly appreciated
