    I have both analytics and clicky tracking people on my site (I know I should only use one and will soon).

    The thing is that clicky is telling my I have 200 uniques to my site and when I Check analytics it tells me I only lhave like 30. Clicky isn't counting my ip on my site so I'm wondering whats up with that, any ideas? Also the 200 is all different traffic going to different areas of the site but through the same landing page.

    ALSO, site stats isn't tracking it either.

    Gosuguy,

    Other than rare conflicts in tracking code, the main reason you shouldn't use more than one tracking platform is that they could be tracking things differently and reporting different data.

    I suppose I would look at the pages first where you are receiving data from one platform and not another. Is there anything amiss about the tracking code on those pages (for the platform that isn't registering data?) Perhaps there is a conflict in the tracking code?

    I would look in those places first,

    Best,

    Shawn

    Yeah, obviously a conflict in there somewhere. Just use clicky.

    Well I found out the bulk of the traffic was coming from clicksor.com but I don't advertise with them nor have I heard of them until today, could it just be a way to get people to their site?

    Do you have any competitors that might want to flood your site with junk traffic? We've had to block clicksor due to that issue, unless it had been them doing it, but we assumed someone was just setting up junk campaigns targeting our site.

    Well if that was the case they would just send a bunch of crappy bounce rate traffic though right? This is mostly sticky traffic with anywhere from 2 to 10 minutes on my site with multiple page clicks.
