Here's where things start getting interesting. I installed some Google Analytics trackers on my webpages--because I'm curious about how this whole internet deal works. Check this out.
Aside from the fact that Weebly makes me feel better about how many people visit my sites, this is stunning. Let's zoom in and narrow our focus for a moment. Look at unique users with me.
Not only have the numbers been reduced, they've switched! Weebly has 'personal' beating 'school' by 3:1. Google has 'school' beating 'personal' by 5:3. I didn't see that coming.
I figure the numbers are reduced based on the differences in how Weebly and Google track users. I know I for one block and delete tracking cookies on my computer (thank you Ghostery and Better Privacy) and in doing so don't show up in Google Analytics tabulations. I do, however, show up in Weebly's calcuations because they count IP addresses. But I doubt most of the internet is doing the same thing. Even so, my expectation is that the numbers for both websites would be reduced by similar percentages. Not so my friends. Not so at all.
There's an interesting discussion about these discrepancies on this thread.
