Google Analytics Dashboard
Stats off slightly due to /register/?redirect_to= (1 post)

    Hiya,

    We noticed the other day that stats in the dashboard were slightly off for a download we're tracking and upon checking I discovered it's due to the plugin including redirects into the stats.

    E.g.,

    Tracking example.com/download.pdf the plugin records 21 hits
    Analytics, however says 20 hits

    Searching for "download.pdf" in Analytics shows two results;
    download.pdf = 20 hits
    /register/?redirect_to=download.pdf = 1 hit

    The person who went through /register will have downloaded once but been recorded twice.

    Is there any way to avoid this happening?

    Thanks
