@wittywoman If you are reffering to my answer, I was telling a little bit other thing. utm codes are working fine, but some e-mail marketing systems as well as some banner management systems automatically change "&" symbol by it's encoded version, i.e. ";&" and as a result utm codes are not working anymore. So to avoid this, I recommend to shorten the url which contains utm codes.

Actually you can do something to avoid this. Before shortening , add campaign tracking parameters to your URL. It could be something like:
In this case GA will still track this traffic as social after shortening.
@KenWarr Well, if you use Analytics URL builder you should have something like this www.example.com/?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=CampaignName And in most of cases it should work, but I have also faced a problem, in some cases "&" symbols are replaced in the URL by encoded version like ;& , and as a result no tracking happens. To avoid this you can take Tracking URL and shorten it using for example this page http://goo.gl/ . after that you will need to use new , shortened URL inside you email. Tracking will work as it should.

@Adrienne Whole New Mom Did you checked all your pages for having GA tracking code? May be you've done some change and removed tracking code from some part of pages ?

@tacimala And what will happen if I'll use "ppc" ? Will it be mixed with AdWord traffic? Or AdWords uses "cpc" ?

Hi, I've found some strange thing in my reports. For my Facebook ads tracking I used campaign tracking URL made by Google's URL builder. Campaign source was Facebook and Medium was cpc. In Campaign reports of GA all data id fine. But unfortunately all FB ads traffic is also shown in Paid Search section. I guess this is because of "cpc" medium. Do you have any idea on how ti fix this ?
