    Has anyone else been seing weird shit happen with Google Analytics lately? A couple of weeks ago the last day started appearing off the screen an it happens on my work pc and my home computer. It will randomly show a day that's 3 time higher than the average day and then when I click around a bit an then go back to overview, it's shows the right numbers.

    Is it just me or has GA been really weird lately?

    Yep, pretty much across all domains. I didn't get my hopes up cause no way those jumps would be possible. I mean, regularly it's at least a hundred percent jump, and knowing my keywords, I knew it wasn't regular traffic - bots maybe...but when I log in the next day, the spike is gone.

    Yeah, its strange. It used to be pretty reliable but its been so annoying lately. Does your graph go off the side of the screen?

    Same here. I prefer using Jetpeck and Slimstat on wordpress. That are somewhat accurate

    It's a display bug. Just set your timeframe and add the current day (not the default, the day before) and you'll be fine.
