How do I see referral sources in Google Analytics 4?
Asked 8 months ago
So, I've built a referral program for my business, and I now need to see how this program is actually doing and whether it makes any difference. I use GA 4, do you know where to find the referral sources?

Follow these simple steps to view your referral URLs in Google Analytics:
- To see referral URLs, first sign in to Google Analytics.
- Select the website for which you want to check the referral URLs.
- Click on Acquisition, press Traffic Acquisition and scroll down to view the table.
- The table will show you traffic from all the mediums/sources.
- Narrow it down to view the referring URLs by typing "referral" in the search bar.

From what I can see out of the box, no. :( I was able to generate a report by creating the following. Here's how to do it:
- Explore > Blank Exploration > Under Variables Under Dimensions select page referrer Under metrics select total users, new users, bounce rate, etc.
- Under Tab Settings Drag page referrer to Rows Drag all metrics to Values
Hope this helps!!
