I know that views in "my account" are based on a 24 hour period and not a calendar day. That said, all through yesterday when I checked my account, it didn't show a number related to traffic Analytics is reporting for yesterday.
Since I didn't check my analytics until this morning, I could only compare the number from yesterday (analytics) to my 24 hour number (hubpages.)
I'm seeing a 22% difference in traffic between hubpages and analytics, with analytics having the higher number.
Anyone experiencing the same? What could be causing it?
I'm pulling the number in Analytics from the "content overview" line graph in case that could have something to do with it. (I figured perhaps unique v total number of pageviews could be the difference.)
Additionally, I block my own IP in Analytics so my own views don't show up, so if anything I'd think my account here on HubPages would have the higher number given that I'm unable to discount my own views here.
The numbers I'm seeing are:
22% difference for yesterday
11% difference for the past seven days
5% difference for the past 30 days
The two sites use different criteria to calculate views. You'll never be able to get them to match up.
If you run Adsense, you'll see that Analytics always misses some of that, too. Same reason,

I lowered the amount of products to lower than an average of 1 per 50 words on the hubs that HubPages has penalized. Furthermore, on hubs that weren't penalized I got rid...

Why is there a difference in number of page views in Adsense and Analytics?I note that Anaytics shows a higher number of page views than Adsense - i.e. just views, not clicks. The total of views given on Hubpages itself is different again, but I appreciate that may include your own visits to...

I am not very intelligent when it comes to traffic stats, so sue me..lolWhy is Google Analytics stats more than the HP stats for the same period? Before you assume that Google logs my visits to my hubs, let me clarify that I have hardly been visiting my own hubs. I have an excess of 400+ visitors...
