Statistics - FlexBanners / Google Analytics

Post by maailm » Fri Oct 28, 2016 2:48 pm

I started to use FlexBanners.
In my test:
Flex Banners Statistic shows: Impression mades 12840, Cliks 38
My Google Analytics shows: Impression mades 11825
Client’s Google Analytics shows: Cliks 18.

Why there are differences?

Also: In the testperiod I found 5 new bots. I described them in modules\mod_flexbanners\mod_flexbanners.php

Best Regards

Google uses very sophisticated algorithms to ensure views and clicks are legitimate. They are far more reliable than this extension can possibly be. For example, if someone clicks a link but then immediately closes the page it goes to then Google won't record it as a click.
