    I'm missing some traffic...lots of it actually. Somewhere between AWStats and Google Analytics and Adsense my traffic has gone missing. Here are the stats so far from Feb. 12 when I got it up and running again and today. Is it possible for someone to steal my traffic like that?

    AWStats and Google Analytics:

    Forget about AWStats, google analytics shows the right numbers.

    Yeah, that sucks because AWStats says I have so many thousands of uniques I thought Google was wrong.

    AWstats analyzes your server-side. Analytics only registers your client side. Those are two very different things, you may want to read up on that.

    Even so, it still seems like I'm missing traffic. My Adsense numbers, as far as my top banner is seeing some better numbers since I played with the code so users are directed back to the homepage after logon. I set up adfly just for the hell of it yesterday and that's not working for me either.

    your mind :P
    The better way to look for traffic is your Google Analytics. Also you may try to check your site in SEMrush.

    Google analytics should be good enough to give you an idea.

    It's like Alexa only a lot better. It shows I'm at around 10 million right now and Google page rank of 3. I post that my main banner stats were improving, I took a look and it said 195 ad requests and then, 30 mins. later it says 35. As far as my site goes it says my top banner has had over 9 million impressions since 2-13. Google is skimming I swear.

    My previous theme was nice but, had some bugs...I have only added one mod and the most important part of that mod is the sql query so, I used that to direct users to the home page once they logon. I saw a Propeller ads banner here so, I thought I'd give that a try and so far, the stats seem to be ok. As far as Adsense goes I made $1.01 today woo hoo look out.

    Are you sure G didn't switch you over to HTTPS from HTTP? They are doing this automatically and it will show zeros on HTTP but if you check HTTPS you will see everything. This threw me for a loop.
