[Plugin: Google Analytics for WordPress] Over 50% of visitors not being tracked (6 posts)

    Over 50 percent of my visitors are not being tracked in GA. I am using the GA plug in for wordpress. What the hell could cause this? This makes GA a useless piece of crap for my use. I know it is wrong because I use kstats and wordpress site stats and I can see that GA stats are significantly lower than the tracking tools are reporting. PLEASE HELP! Is the plug in screwed or what?

    No the plugin isn't screwed. Either you don't have a wp_head call on all of your site's pages or something else is causing either the other plugins to overreport or GA to under report. If you don't share your URL though, nobody will ever be able to tell :)

    The url of my website is http://www.seeksuccess.com

    I am using a decent number of wordpress plug ins, however, minimized as much as possible. If anything jumps out at you let me know. I really need GA to be accurate and it is not.

    I'm experiencing exactly the same issue. Analog and Webalizer are both showing vastly higher statistics than the GA Plug-in. The difference is enormous.

    I've disabled the plug-in for now, and inserted the GA code manually to see if the discrepancy remains or if GA starts showing data more in line with the server logs.

    Have you noticed any changes in stats?
    Also if one was to add the wp_head separately, where would it go?

    Evil, have you noticed any difference after installing the codes manually? Please let me know thanks.
