Counterize differs from itself and google analytics - can someone help me? (3 posts)

    Hey Guys - I'm having some issues with discrepancies between what Counterize is publishing on my page, what the Counterize plugin is saying on the dashboard, and what Google Analytics is saying. Could someone help me out by taking a look at the below data? My site is http://www.edgeeks.com

    Thank you.

    Right now the Counterize section at the bottom of the page shows the below stats:

    Unique Views
    24 Hours: 470
    7 Days: 1,904
    Month: 4,859

    When I click on the Counterize plugin on the WordPress dashboard it shows the below stats:

    Unique Views
    24 Hours: 180
    7 Days: 767
    Month: 1,163

    When I look in the audience - overview section of Google Analytics, I get the below stats:

    Unique Views
    24 Hours: 84
    7 Days: 426
    Month: 1,951

    I'm having the same issue for for any type whether it be page views, hits, uniques, etc. Does anyone have any idea whats going on here? I was very excited when I saw my numbers pop over the weekend but Google Analytics doesn't match up and I'm wondering if Counterize can be trusted since the numbers differ so much between its own applications. Thank you.

    Hi there!

    You will always have different numbers between Counterize and Google Analytics because Counterize filters different bots than Google Analytics and for various other reasons. However it's not normal that Counterize itself displays different numbers for the same information.

    So, firstly, what is your Counterize version?

    Then, could you tell me how did you get the Unique views on the bottom of your page? Did you write any PHP code?

    Also, could you make a copy of the table in the "Traffic" page of Counterize and paste it here?

    Thank you for using Counterize :)
