Why am I seeing odd sources in my reports?

From Market Ruler Help

You're seeing strange "Source" landings in your reports from sources such as:

  • web
  • hp

This is due to a setting in your site:

To be clear, in the old version of ConversionRuler, we used the term "source=" in URLs to identify where traffic came from. With this setting on, ConversionRuler recognizes this in the referring URL on your site, and thinks you intended to specify the source.

To eliminate the erroneous traffic, disable this feature in your Site Settings by unchecking the box, and clicking Update Site.

Note you should update ALL inbound links to use the new landing syntax first.
