Google Analytics Visitor Counts do not match with Statcounter or Adsense

Discussion in 'Google Analytics' started by Suziclue, Jun 2, 2015.

    Hi,

    I am a bit confused as to why I would get a Session and User count of 200+ a day but on Adsense and statcounter, it's only showing about 10 Visitors. Are these visitors being lost somewhere?

    Can someone point out the reason behind this?

    Thank you

    Recently there is a wave of spam stats in google analytics, it might be why you see more data in analytics.
    To check that, go to
    Acquisition > source/medium and search for any site similar to these:
    social-buttons.com
    free-share-buttons.com

    the stats from these site is fake, it is not real visitors to the site and that can effect what you see.

    Note that you will never see same stats in different platforms as some users are excluded form tracking, some have ad blocker etc'

    I have a lot that says "Direct" but none of these shows up as hits on my Statcounter or Adsense Impressions. I do have a few from the bots also but it's only like 5% of the hits. Most are from Direct s.

    Google Analytics might have included spam bots too in the statistics... you should get awstats for detailed statistics report

    Analytics is yet another DEAD Google project!
    Misleading and boringly complex.

    I have noticed something similar....what I use now is the Plugin Jetpack, this gives me up to date stats, keywords that have been searched for and where exactly my traffic is coming from! Its free and has loads of other cool options and things that you can use to make your site better....just an idea!
