I'm trying to adjust for an error we had on our site when 2 of the same trackPageview properties was up on our site.

Does having 2 trackPageview calls double the "visits" in Google Analytics? I know it doubles the pageviews, but based on what I'm reading in Google Analytics, it shouldn't double the visits.

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

I just gave this a try and created a duplicate Universal Analytics Tag in the Tag Manager for our Website. In Real Time View I showed up as a single visitor (even though two trackers where created), so I'd say visits are not affected by double page calls.

Looking at my data now based on the date I was able to figure out when the additional trackpageview code was added and it looks like visits stay flat when everything else doubles. Thanks for testing it out also! – user3246483 Jan 29 '14 at 14:25
