I've been confused by the descrepency between my Posterous stats and my Google Analytics stats for Creative Notice. So, I emailed Posterous for an answer, and they gave me one.
I'm confused by the stats for post views. In the manage section of my account, my posts are showing several thousand views. In my Google Analytics account, I'm only seeing 100+ visitors.
Why the discrepancy? Do you calculate views differently than Google?Thanks,
First of all, when people read your posts through the Posterous reader that counts as a view for that post on Posterous. But that would not hit google analytics. Same for RSS feeds.
That will count as a post view for *each* of the posts on that page. Google would count that as one view for that page, and no views for each post.
