All,

I work for a publisher and we are trying to use GA to get a better understanding of referrals to our articles. A lot of our article traffic comes from internal referrals from our home page or other articles. 

By default, GA referral dimensions are at the session level and it takes a lot of tedious steps to get summaries on the internal and external traffic to a story (there is no way a non-analyst is going to do this regularly).

We're working on setting custom dimensions that capture internal and external referrals with the same roll up and drill-through flexibility as GA's session referral dimensions but it's taxing and I'm hoping there might be a better solution. I'm basically trying to mimic GA's referral logic but at the hit level. 

Has anyone tried to get hit-level referrals and hit level channel groupings into GA? 

Hello - can someone point me to the list of networks Google has classified as "social" be default?

Looking for some advice. We're sending newsletter traffic to one of our subdomains but I'm unable to tag the newsletter template with GA utm parameters. The template auto-generates urls with parameters used by a different analytics system.  As a workaround, I created a custom channel grouping using the parameters used for this other (proprietary) system - the channel is defined based off of' landing page url'. Is there a better way to do this or is this my best bet? Thank you.
