[resolved] Pageview vs Google Analytics discrepancy (5 posts)

    Why don't the pageviews in the plugin and Google Analytics match? There is a huge difference of 57 (plugin) vs 337 (Google Analytics) for the same time period.

    It is because the plugin also counts all the bot visits, therefore giving a completely false idea of traffic. Google Analytics does not count bot visits in the real traffic results. I asked for clarification on this on here, never got a response, but have since investigated it myself and it's true.

    hello,

    @mihalisg nospeakenglish is saying that google showing high view count (337) but the plugins shows less (57).

    but according to your comments above, its mean that the stat should be viceversa.

    @nospeakenglish i get the point why it showing discrepancy, its due to the sql query (date between) issue, we shell update asap, insha Allah.

    Thanks both of you.

    I have the discrepancy where the plugin is way high and useless. Personally, if the plugin is that far off from Google Analytics... it's not worth anything.

    A couple of article examples
    GA = 54 views vs. Plugin = 227 views
    GA = 33 views vs. Plugin = 1455 views
    GA = 492 views vs. Plugin = 876 views

    I will be uninstalling it now. Useless.
