Duda Stats different than Google Analytics

Anyone else running into this issue? I am seeing different stats such as visitors, page views, etc. that are different than what is showing up in Google Analytics. I double checked to make sure GA was installed properly and it is. I'm seeing this across the board on my sites. Any insight here would be awesome!

    👋

    Adding the Stats and Analytics tag so this finds its way to the right place :)

    So your Site Stats within the Dashboard don't match the stats you see on your search console?

    Correct. It's strange. It's happening with multiple sites but here is one example of metrics for the same exact time period. In this example, Duda data is reporting about 300 more sessions than GA and about 2000 less pageviews. Individual Page data is also drastically different. I'm just not sure where to even start here to figure out what is wrong.

    I think it may just be how Duda displays the stats for us.. I think if we got a Duda Rep on here that handles the stats aspect they can help out a little more.. @Sheyla do we have a Duda Employee who can help us out on this?

    Every analytics tool will return different results, even like in this case, both being powered by Google Analytics.

    Basically, you want to choose one and stick with that. Not to start 'splaining, but... it's not about verifying that you had exactly 176 visitors in the month (checked across multiple tools), but monitoring relative changes over time.

    That said, I have always wondered about such variances as you described above. So in that light, my comments may not be as useful. Sorry.
