As of June 18 I have noticed that I have lost 1/2 of all my daily visitors. My raw logs show me that I'm averaging about 2,000 a day. While Google is telling me 800 - 1000.

My conversion points have doubled - so now the site converts at 20% but has 1/2 the traffic.

The GA are off, the logs show the same traffic. Tracking script is on all pages , but the numbers are wrong.. what to do?

I have sent in a support ticket and do not have answers yet. Has anyone had this issue?

Same here... GA shows a drop of almost 10k visits / day compared to Webtrends Ondemand since 06/27. I'm at loss to explain this discrepency...

I was just looking at ny webalizer webstats in cpanel and comparing them to GA numbers and they are at about 1/2. There are twice as many visitors on webalizer as Google analytics.

At first I thought that webalizer was wrong, that it was counting sessions or something other then unique users. But I saw this post and it make me wonder.

Let me know if anyone finds an answer.

Thanks

I just thought of something. I did change a filter on Analytics to exclude our ip address so it doesn't track our company traffic on our website.

We have only 15 employees and I showed about an 800 unique visitor difference between webalizer and Google analytics.

Could this be the difference?
