Google Analytics: Paid Search Advanced Segment excluding some google / cpc traffic

Can anyone out there explain why the following might be happening?

Earlier today I viewed a Google Analytics Ecommerce report for a client and found a revenue that was about 0.2% less than what I was expecting it to be. Not much, you might think but when the revenue is over $100,000 it's enough to make me curious.

I viewed the revenue report by clicking on Standard Reporting, Conversions, Ecommerce and Overview:


I then selected a source/medium of google / cpc to get the Adwords revenue:


And this was the figure that was slightly less than expected. Further investigation showed that I had inadvertently applied an Advanced Segment of Paid Search Traffic.



The question is, why should this make a difference? What could be coming through as google / cpc that the Paid Search Traffic segment is filtering out? Please leave a comment if you have any ideas about what could be causing this discrepancy.

  1. Google has started showing figures based on samples of the total data - you can increase the percentage of data that is used but it increases their 'loading' time. Maybe that's the reason.

  2. The title is fundamentally essential to how Google and the other internet searchers rank you. It's likely the absolute most imperative part of a page. Be that as it may, it's frequently dismissed or seriously worded. I'm as blameworthy of this as anyone else.
