    Two codes on same website generating different data sets?


    Hi, I've just started working with my first freelance client and their analytics set up seems a little strange: they have two properties for the same site and both show different data sets.

    1) I matched the date range in each view to make sure it wasn't just that they looked different because 1 had been set up earlier, not that.

    2) I looked at filters and neither property had any filters

    3) I looked in the admin settings and noticed that the default URL for the second property included a trailing / at the end, I looked on Google for a duplicate trailing / page but couldn't find one,

    I'm a bit out of my technical depth, could anyone shed any light?

    Hope it not analytics services...

    Data can differ for several reasons, on you have not listed could be "valid hostname" config, another could be a "do not count known bots".

    When you talk about filters where did you check?
