    So I've been building an adult site and putting my g00gle analytics code on every page. G00gle says I'm getting like 0-7 unique hits per day while my affiliate stats say I'm getting like 20-30 click throughs per day... so what gives? has anyone had this experience before? Is my sponsor counting bot hits that g00gle does not?

    google analytics use javascript,it might not count bot traffic. Just a guess though.

    If the browser does not support javascript or the user is using firefox with adblock+ / noscript they won't see google ads nor will google analytics work.

    I've seen Google Analytics be off by as much as 90% before. It's good to a degree but can give hire levels of inaccuracy. You really should be using server side stats in and then use Google analytics to compare the data.
