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.
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?
