    Google analytics data mismatch


    Hello,

    Today I have found that Google Analytics give improper data for absolute unique visitors (in new version & old too).

    If i am going to visitors (then click on absolute unique visitors & then export it as csv (there are 8438 visitors) but on dashboard it display 7900 unique visitors.

    even if I am going through old interface then its display different visitors than both above.

    Is this google bug, anybody notice this ?

    Gogole Analytics


    Google analytics is not the most reliable tool. Depending on the way you go into categories the numbers will change every time. For example if you want to know visitors from the UK via Google, the visits will be different depending on whether you go Google searches (then sort by country), or country breakdown (sort by Google). Not a reliable tool, but certainly tht best free tool on the internet!
