    I don't know about you but I'm wondering a lot about Google Analytics nowadays

    I installed statcounter and compared it to Analytics and the difference can some days be upto 30%.

    Even worse is the number of clicks said to be coming from Facebook and never showing up on analytics.

    Anyone with an idea of why this is so?

    Will be following this thread since I have monitored the same issue... not sure if it is an issue at all but I don't understand it neither.

    I went out and found out that the reason is because they both use different metrics to come out with the numbers

    It's a long article so I'll just leave the link here

    I'll continue using both for the time being.
