There are many reasons why clicks from PDFs, Websites, Ads or Mobile apps turned into Direct Traffic. But, the main reason behind it is: Any visitor who lands on your website without a HTTP referrer agent string, is regarded as direct traffic. I research on same things, but i not found exact solution to track.
