Wordpress site's visitor stats
need help on wordpress site's visitor's stats

Msg#: 4160568 posted 11:08 am on Jun 28, 2010 (gmt 0)

I am using Google analytics for my wordpress website.

However, I get completely different stats for awStats in my CPanle and that in google analytics. THere is a huge difference (cpanel shows 40 visitors and Google 3!)

How can set everything correct.

Please help!

Different stats packages often (even always) give different numbers. This is because they use different methods to get their numbers.

In your two cases:
1. Google Analytics can only count a visitor who has JavaScript working

2. AWStats uses the server logs and so can count all your traffic - including automated traffic that does not follow JavaScript.

So the two different visitor stats will almost never agree.

note - I apologize for editing your post to remove the website name, but knowing the website name does not help us answer your question. As a rule, we ask members not to post their own website.
