    My hop count shows 32 but my Google analytics shows 22. Does that mean that the extra people are visiting from a bookmarked page or from a link on my own site?

    What does that mean?
    Or does it simply mean that the either Google or ClickBank have counters that are wrong? It cannot be 32 and 22 total on Jan. 6, 2017 at the same time.

    The same person going through a hoplink twice would count as 2 hops in Clickbank's analytics....Then you also have spiders, robots, etc.

    Most likely it's all fine, nothing to worry about.

    Correct. Some analytics don't count bots, and your own visits, some do... if its a small difference, no prob, if you get 100 with one, and 200 with the other one, that'd be something to worry about fixing.
