    My stats aren't making sense.
    I'm running a datafeedr based ecommerce/wordpress platform site, dripping the products to the wordpress site and feeding each product/post to twitter. It's like a cross between an ecommerce site and an autoblog. :cool:
    I'll be paying for onlywire in a minute, so there will be a lot of bookmarking going on.

    Anyhow, the site went live yesterday around 2:15 pm EST. It's been 19 hours.

    Google analytics says 19 visitors yesterday, 65% bounce rate, 2.84 page views per visit.
    Statpress says 65 visitors, 795 page views, 421 spiders, 448 feeds.
    WTF? What's up with the discrepancy?

    Haven't checked on sales yet, but the bounce rate makes me think there might be some sales. Also going to add a few new vendors later tonight.

    Using socialoomph.com to autofollow/unfollow and direct message all new followers. I haven't really focused on adding followers. Will do that later tonight after I see how many have followed me. FYI, socialoomph is not doing the auto-unfollow thing as well as I would like.

    I'm going to look into different analytics options later, but I've got a full plate right now. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

    edit: Todays stats are way up, according to statpress:
    77 visitors, 1038 page views, 554 Spiders, 1399 feeds. And that is after cutting way back on the drip/feed rate.

    I don't like GA myself. Especially if you are using BH methods I do not recommend having GA installed.

    Try using the raw stats form your host. Also, just because GA is run by the
    mighty G, doesn't mean it sucks. I've seen so many articles on GA not working
    well at all.

    Stick with stattress and aw stats, plus the ras hosting stats.
