    Hi,

    My Cpanel stats are ten times larger than my google analytics stats. Sorry I'm new to all this especially web hosting still I somehow managed to create site and drive traffic to it (very little search engine very much twitter-traffic).
    I redirect t*witter users through t*inyurl to come to my site. Other than using twitter to get traffic nothing is bh on my website. My cpa network show me numbers that are close to my cpanel.

    Can somebody tell me why my cpanel stats differ from my google analytics stats my google analytics stats?

    Is driving traffic through twitter and redirecting it though tinyurl safe to blank the refer for a cpa because my cpanel stats show me the twitter link my traffic came from.

    Thanks in advance

    Another variable is bot traffic and whether CPanel simply adds all the traffic while Analytics filters bot traffic out and shows only legitimate human visits.

    Checked it out I'm pretty sure cpanel counts bot traffic pnly as a hit and not as unique visitor. Wouldn't fit figure wise either and visitors appear to being coming from this twitter link which also shows in cpanel :-(

    Thanks though

    I actually had this same thing happen to me, and I emailed google. They told me that google analytics simply doesn't consider some "traffic" feasible (worthy/acceptable). They didn't specify why.

    I'm assuming because Google is so advanced in their algorithms (they have an uncrackable algorithm) that they can "filter" certain traffic from certain locations.
