Standardize on the same label for Non Search Traffic on referrer Dashboard
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Story Points

Description

We're using a couple of different terms for non search referrer traffic

and possibly others I haven't tracked down.

Let's standardize. I'd suggest 'Non Search Traffic' to be explicit and clear that it not search related and also not simply unidentifiable. thanks

Would it be possible for the graphs to have lines for 'Referer - other' and 'No referer'?

Granted a number of inbound links point at http:// (not https://) and the consequent 30x will (always?) result in there being 'no referer'. But search engines and (I think?) HSTS should generally result in the request bearing a Referer.

Ironholds set Security to None.
