    Google Analytics shows 4 types of traffic (mediums) by default: Referrals, Organic, Paid, and Direct traffic.

    In the documentation, Direct traffic is defined as URL’s that people either type in directly or reach via their browser bookmarks.

    How does traffic categorization work for unpaid traffic? GA and other web analytics systems rely on an HTTP language header called “referrer” which passes the referring site user clicked on to reach the site.

    How does traffic categorization work for unpaid traffic? GA and other web analytics systems rely on an HTTP language header called “referrer” which passes the referring site user clicked on to reach the site.

    However, the amount of Direct traffic often seems to be much higher than you’d expect. The reason for this is that GA actually categorizes all the traffic for which the source could not be recognized as “Direct.” The number of such instances is growing due to:
    • More privacy and security plugins in users’ browsers, thus more traffic is stripped from the “referrer” header, showing up as Direct.
    • Multiple devices beyond the desktop become ubiquitous. Some of them strip the referrer, especially for organic traffic. A known example is Safari browser ub iOs6 and above
    • The proliferation of QR codes – mobile traffic coming from QR scans is usually marked as Direct.
    • App store apps and other sources of mobile traffic are often marked as Direct.
    The best way to minimize false Direct traffic is to make sure to tag all your campaigns and controlled traffic, i.e. all email marketing and social media posts. This way, campaign traffic will be attributed to the right traffic source, regardless of where visitors clicked on it.

    Having said that, it’s important to keep in mind that Direct traffic will always entail some level of mystery, as it includes all unrecognized traffic, in addition to true direct traffic.

    Direct traffic is defined as visits with no referring web site. once a visitor follows a link from one web site to a different, the positioning of origin is taken into account the referrer. These sites is search engines, social media, blogs, or alternative websites that have links to alternative websites.
