WP125
Click count is wrong (7 posts)

    The wp125 dashboard says I have over 1200 clicks for one ad in the last month, however Google analytics says it's only 50. Why the discrepancy? It seems I can't trust this plugin to track the links

    Same here. I thought maybe it was because of Google crawling the page but when I look at the code I do see this in the ad links which supposedly tells Google not to follow the links.

    rel="nofollow"

    Does anyone have a suggestion?

    Same here. Huge discrepancy between WP125 and AWSTATS. I run a website for a colleague and have a WP125 ad pointing at their website from my website. Because I run both websites I have access to the linked website and can view their AWSTATS counts. The Google analytics are even more disparate.
    What is WP125 counting as a click please ?

    I think my stats are wrong too - over-inflated! No answer re this issue?

    I reported 400 clicks to one of my advertisers an he is coming back and saying he only sees 5 clicks in Google Analytics.

    *sigh*

    Yes its a bit sad when you can't trust the numbers. I've noticed this topic has come up in the forum a couple of times but ends up getting closed without response.

    Sadly, I'm going to have to move to another ad management plugin very soon.
