I am doing some testing with Google Analytics to see how it does its tracking. I noticed after testing that it is only capturing 65% of my traffic.
This is what I did:
- Go to site in Internet Explorer
- Navigate around
- Clear cache/cookies/history etc
- Close browser
- Start at the beginning
I did this 1-4 times yesterday on 5 different browsers for a total of 13 times. Only 9 sessions are showing up in Google Analytics. I am expecting 13 sessions to show up.
Edit: It seems like Google does their tracking primarily with cookies, so I think that clearing my cookies should have reset my session.
