Are you tracking every page?
Don’t take for granted that your stats are installed and configured properly. Â Make sure that your code is installed onceÂ on all pages.Â Â CommonÂ errorsÂ include:
-installing only on the homepage
-copying partially broken or fully broken code to less used pages
-referencing theÂ codeÂ toÂ yourÂ PCÂ (soÂ itÂ willÂ onlyÂ workÂ forÂ you)Â -Â doubleÂ checkÂ byÂ askingÂ aÂ friendÂ ofÂ yoursÂ toÂ tryÂ loadingÂ someÂ specificÂ pagesÂ -Â seeÂ ifÂ theyÂ showÂ upÂ inÂ yourÂ stats.
-other miscelaneous HTML errors which may break the rest of your site – check if you site is w3c valid.
-made updates to your site and you may have lost your code
Aside from the obvious tracking errors, there are some other considerations you should pay very close attention to:
-Are you using the simple or standard HTML code? Â If your editing environment can support the standard code, you should use it! Â It is far superior to the simple HTML version of the code.
-Are you lumping multiple sites together in the same site profile? Â You may find that creating seperate site profiles will give you a much clearer picture on the nature of each site.Â Â YouÂ willÂ alsoÂ findÂ managementÂ ofÂ theseÂ multuipleÂ profilesÂ toÂ beÂ muchÂ easierÂ withÂ futureÂ GoStatsÂ features.
-Do you want your stats private or public? Â Double check the status and make sure that it is set to your liking/comfort.
Don’t assume the above are the only possible problems you can have. Â Think further about other issues which are related to the uniqueness of your own site.
