Google Analytics Having Problems with URL Redirect? (1 post)

    Hi all,

    I'll start by admitting that this may not be a WordPress issue, but I've found the folks on this support forum to be extremely helpful, so I'm asking here.

    I run a website, evilbeetgossip.com. It was recently sold to film.com, and we changed the .htaccess file so that it redirects to evilbeetgossip.film.com. Here are the contents of the .htaccess file:

    # BEGIN WordPress

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(.*)evilbeetgossip.com$ [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://evilbeetgossip.film.com/$1 [R=301,L]

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress

    Ever since I did this, my Google Analytics stats have been much lower than those tracked by SiteMeter. The stats Film.com has for the site are even lower than that (they are also using Analytics). The tracking code is all in the same place -- before the </body> tag.

    Does anyone know enough about Analytics to understand why this might be happening and what I can do to fix it?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks!!!
