    Sorry as I know this may already have been asked..if so, please point me to the answer.

    I am getting different stats from the plugin on my site and from my actual GA account. Why is there a discrepancy? Or what 'could' be the reason? Which is right?

    I appreciate any help I can get.

    Best Regards

    Nothing on this anyone?? Would appreciate knowing what's going on. I cannot locate any information anywhere.

    Again, sorry as I know this may already have been asked..if so, please point me to the answer.

    Thanks

  3. Link to your site please? If you're getting different stats then either your GA account is being used elsewhere or maybe the code is being applied incorrectly somehow.

    Hi Jan,

    Thanks so much for your reply. Here is the link to the site: http://ownyourmoney.com/. I haven't a clue what's wrong.

    To be clear, this plugin does give me Page stats inside the admin panel right? To the right of the Page name, etc. before I click to edit? Just making sure I am even looking at the right thing.

    Numbers in admin panel are higher than in GA account when I log in.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Tina

    Hi Tina,

    I just found your post. I'm confused as to what you're looking at inside your admin on the site. The plugin doesn't display any statistics for the site in the admin panel. It is only the setup for the GA tracking.

    Can you describe what you're looking at inside the wp-admin? It sounds like you may have some other plugin tracking something and giving you different numbers.

    Regards,
    Shawn

    Hi graisee,

    Thanks for your response.

    That was the issue. When I logged into the admin panel, and clicked on "Pages" > "All Pages", in that area, to the far right of each Page Title, was where I saw stats.

    I did have a separate dashboard GA plugin, and I assumed that only displayed on the dashboard and that the stats I saw next to the Page Titles in "All Page" view was from this plugin.

    I just deactivated that other plugin and I do not now see stats in the admin panel!

    Thanks so much!!
    Tina
