    Default Guests Online Not Matching With Analytics

    Hi Folks.

    As title suggests I am puzzled.

    Logging into my site yesterday I noticed to my joy that I had currently 36 'guests online' (new site so 36 was good for me).

    So what went wrong with my daily midnight visit to google analytics to find that total visits for yesterday came to just 12?

    As far as I am aware, Zen is set up to not include Bots or admin.

    Sorry if there is another thread with such a topic, I couldn't find one.

    Thank you in advance for anyone who has an explanation.

    Regards.

    David.

    (a) they can be multiple IP's, (b) this month from around the 26th March Google has been having data problems with Google Analytics so none of it can be taken as gospel at the moment.

    The best way to learn is to try stuff. But, back it up first.
