There is one powerful tool available on the internet called Google analytics that can be more accurate and effective for analyzing the traffic associated with your sites and there is no doubt that this particular tool having all the powerful abilities and can do clever things like tracking the actions, clients, purpose, etc. without the need of downloading anything at the client’s end but at the same time it has some issues with it.

What does it explain us?

A recent discovery shows us that a Google analytics (a tool used to analyse the traffic for your site) has the ability to read clicks coming from the Google home application of your mobile device and treating it as the direct traffic. Whenever you asked something or search something useful from the Google home device, it will throw you or respond you back with the related answer, and for doing this thing, it has to be involved in data to find the particular resource. Those type results usually come from information stored on the Google’s indexed web pages.

When direct traffic is outsourced

The entire relevant search performed by the user or recent visiting history of the user can bring the user to the original resource of this information. Google somehow considering this traffic organic because Google tends to discover the originality of this content as Google home app. However, a deep research shows that a Google is counting this as the direct traffic.

Usually, a direct traffic is counted whenever someone either manually enters the URL into the address bar in their browser or when someone enters the unique query in URL. Google can adjust this thing in near future, but for now, we can say that the Google is treating this traffic of Google home app as the direct one.

Giving explanation for the direct traffic to clients

Whenever you see a direct traffic is rising on the websites, then you will come to know that there are many people out there in the world who may are typing the URL of your site to directly navigate to your home page. There can be many scenarios that could be resulted into the direct traffic for example emails, links from https websites, etc. Problems may occur only in case of miss-categorized results like untagged links from emails that can give a tight sign to your clients that you need to have proper tag links in order to track traffic correctly.
