    Cool Google Analytics - Buggy Reporting?

    According to Google Analytics, my sites are going down, fast. However according to Google Adsense, I'm getting more impressions than ever. Webalizer notes the steady inflow of visitors. There's obviously something wrong with Analytics for my site, and I haven't modified the Analytics code, promise!

    I've gotten some very weird readings from Google Analytics as well. I'm using it on a few of my sites. I've assumed that they're still getting the bugs out of the live service. They've closed the service to new users a couple times, so I wonder if they're having some challenges scaling it. You wouldn't expect that from someone with google's infrastructure, but that's what happened with the Google accelerator/proxy service as well.

    Are you sure the codes on all your pages? Could be something as simple as that.

    Yes the code is (obviously) on all pages. That was the first thing I checked.

    I'm getting strange readings with Google Analytics as well. It's nothing like my server stats or any other measuring system.

    Odd - I'm using it on one site only and it's pretty accurate. Equivelant with adsense and my server stats.

    Guess I won't add any of my other sites till it straightens out.

    Google Analytics is not doing good for quite some time after it was made free. I hope it catches up soon.
