Bit.ly Says Potato (1,000 clicks), Google Says Tomato (200 clicks) and now?
Look at this frightening example from I'm Not Actuall a Geek blog:
Bitly gave him 125 clicks but WordPress analytics only 11!??
125 from Bitly - 11from Wordpress = 114 or 91.20% difference! In a real life the differences are usually not that drastic but they could be. If Not a Geek was our client that would translate into hard DIMES:
$1.25 invoice vs. $0.11 invoice.
It is important, as Douglas Adams would say: Don't Panic! UNDERSTAND!!
There are numerous reasons, some of them specific for the Twitter generated traffic that could create such an uneasy difference in a number of clicks. Our own URL shortener will produce logs directly linked to Twitter IDs so it would be no reasons for panic. Until that time we'd have to deal with what we have. And beware, even Google is not immune from mistakes, even click fraud lawsuits.
More about a Complex Click Fraud Trojan here, just for fun, but let us get back to business.
How is it possible, a normal human being that has a life and is not buried under the codes like yours trulyDime-A-Click™ and Verify-A-Click™ providers, that one analytics gives results so vastly different than another, in Google Analytics case, results from a trusted Internet giant?
Let's assume we deliver 15,000 bit.ly clicks worth a $1,500.00 to your website but Google Analytics says it has been far less visitors. Our service guarantee gives you:
a) 6% clicks spillage guarantee i.e. for $1,500.00 we deliver 15,900 clicks,
b) set-up fee reimbursment after 15,000 clicks i.e. next 1,500.00 clicks are free of charge so you and up getting 17,400 clicks for $1,000.00 or 16% discount (in all cases of over 15,000 clicks delivered and paid for).
But what if the difference is still significant? What are the reasons?
Bear with us and please review this partial list of reasons why metrics could differentiate. We live out of your dime and grow our company out of your dime and work very hard to earn your dime. This is important to know for our business relation could rest on healthy foundation and grow:
Are the clicks you're getting legit? Ours will be as much as possible.
Some ISPs (infact, most) use proxy servers to cache pages. This means user A requests your home page. Ten minutes later, person B requests your home page, but it is delivered by the proxy server, not your website, so there is no record of this event on your logfile.
Bit.ly is Twitter's URL shortener of choice (it could be traced here: http://twitter.com/bitlynow) so they are probably the most realiable tracking analytics tool for all the traffic coming from Twitter.
