    In our Cpanel stats it show way much higher numbers than any of the Google's services.
    Yesterday we had on Cpanel's logs show 335 people vs Analytics of 56. Anybody have an idea?

    The two programs ie. Google Analytics and AwStats(I suppose) does the same purpose, but has different ways of collecting data. That's the reason why you see a difference in the numbers at both locations.

    In a brief context, AwStats (cPanel) deduces the results from the server logs where each hit to any url is counted, whereas unique visitors are counted based on unique IPs.
    On the other hand, Google Analytics counts hits to html pages, while unique visitors are tracked using cookies.

    Generally,

    Analytics: a visit is counted when a user visits a web page

    cPanel: a "hit" is counted whenever a file is requested. So if a user visits a site and requests a .html and a .png from the server, the server logs that as two "hits". The same thing happens if a bot is crawling your site (it will also trigger hits).

    Cpanel count hit and bot ,both. Where google analytics not count. The best example, open your website in cyber cafe, it doesn't count in analytics (in some cases) where cpanel count . If you are doing promotion through advertisement , you will find a lot of difference b/w analytics and awstats. Pop up / Pop Under traffic are stats are not count by analytics in many cases.
