    WP-Statistics showing higher values than Google Analytics.

    The values are not even close. Why is WP-Statistics so off?

  • I would suspect several reasons. One, your settings for unique visitor is set high, like 1800 seconds vs Google 86400 seconds… . Another reason Google is off –> because they want to encourage you to pay for ads, Google Ads — Google Android, Google Maps, G Wallet, Google Earth, Gmail, Google Apps, Youtube, Chrome, Google Reader, Google Analytics, Google Search, Google Check Out, Google Finance, Google Cars, Google Goggles, Translate, Google Home, Google Wifi, Pixel, Android Auto and many, many more products, services, suites, and labs… but in the end — IN THE END — in 2015 they made 67.4 BILLION dollars in ads, and everything else, I just mentioned (and missed) only 7.2 BILLION — they need to convince you that YOU need to advertise, hence why the number will be totally misleading. Most interesting, if Google sees your business or service doing well, and another company is considering competing, Google shows off your analytics to competitors to encourage them to spend, spend more or to outspend you. BOOM baby, BOOM!
