Yes of course you are right, now I feel foolish!

Thanks paulmorris, but GA would be able to tell that as well by going to page views and unique page views, and those measure in the double digits for two years worth. Right now my hypothesis is that the person from the partner organization is getting stats from her site via log files and the person giving it to her is just giving her raw stats, not discounting 206 status codes and spiders and internal people. But also I think my GA setup might be off, because 30 downloads seems unreasonable as well, so off the check that.

We don't use virtual page views because I've been told that would increase page view count. We use tracking codes, but tracking codes won't count people who click on the link from a Google search or any link not on our site. So I am using page views and unique page views. As for WebTrends, we are using 8.5 and using Downloaded files.
