  • Adrian DeGus: You can specify in GA what URLs you don't want to be considered as referring URLs. I've had to do this a few times for mobile sub domains.
  • Richard Hearne: Did you check your server logs?

    One thing that comes to mind - did any of your devs ever update their .hosts file to point old domain at new IP locally?
