I've recently built a new site for a recruitment company, totally removed the old site, and added new analytics code, but it still seems to be tracking about 60 visits a day from the old site, which doesn't exist.

I've set up redirects - but I'm just wondering if anyone would have any idea why the old tracking code is still picking up visits?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

it's possible the tracker is on another site or cached somewhere else. In that case the javascript would still execute and send hits to Google Analytics.

Try the Query Explorer, or create a custom report and include the hostname dimension to see what hostname the hits are associated with.
