How accurate is WordPress.com Stats (vs. Google Analytics)?
I am wondering how people feel about the accuracy of WordPress.Com stats vs. Google Analytics or other methods of analyzing site traffic. I installed the WordPress.com stats plugin a few days ago and was excited to log in this morning and see that I had a very good day yesterday… about twice as much traffic as usual. Then I logged into Google Analytics and the numbers don’t agree at all. I can understand a small variation, but showing twice as many visits?
Just so we all know, I’m talking small numbers here. Google Analytics shows 74 visits yesterday, WordPress.org Stats 144. But I currently use G.A. on my site at work, also, and if it’s been grossly underreporting I would like to know that.
