client-id-analytics - Why Do Google Analytics Stats Differ from Blogger Stats?

I meet this question frequently  once I  go through the forums and social groups for Blogger, which is why the statistics of the Blogger platform differ from the statistics of Google Analytics, and why are the statistics of Blogger always significantly greater than the Google statistics?

- Why are Blogger statistics bigger than Google Analytics?

  • The answer may be somewhat shocking, especially for  those that  rely heavily on Blogger statistics to track their blog results,  and therefore the  reason is that these statistics count all the visits that enter the blog, including the crawls of the indexing bots  of varied  search engines.
  • Perhaps all blogger users noticed that after creating the blog and registering it with the webmasters, there are visits from foreign countries, especially from the  us ,  although  the content of the blog is Arabic? This confirms beyond any doubt that these visits come from various crawlers.
  • The reason for this is that Google Analytics filters and excludes various visits from different search bots such as Google, Bing, Yahoo and even ad programs  like  AdSense, while Blogger  doesn't  do so yet.

- Does this mean  that you simply  should not completely rely on blogger statistics?

  1. Of course not, these statistics provide correct data regarding  the amount  of visits coming from search engines and from various other sources such as social networking sites and others,  which provides  you a clear idea of ​​the source of the visits coming to your blog.
  2. As for the unreal visits recorded  thanks to  search engine crawls,  they seem  under the name 'Other',  which can  be a source of somewhat ambiguity because the categorization of the 'Other' traffic source is also direct visits.
  3. Another important thing for Blogger statistics is  to spot  the sources of suspicious and illegal visits that may harm your blog. These visits  could also be  from fake traffic selling sites or they may be from blogs created specifically for this purpose, which unfortunately exists in abundance  within the  Arabic content, where some soul patients resort to Sending illegal traffic to their competitors.
  4. You should also be aware of the feature to disable the calculation of visits coming from your side in all the browsers you use, whether on the desktop or from the phone, to avoid any confusion, and  to try to to  this and from the statistics, scroll to  the underside  of the page and then click on “Manage page views tracking”,  you'll  see another page where it just says "Do not track my views of this blog" and then close the page with the warning that this will work in all browsers that you use to view your blog.

- Webmaster Statistics:

  • Webmaster statistics  like  Google Search Console and Bing Master tool are reliable and fairly accurate sources in calculating the number of blog visits, but  they're  limited only to visits from their search engines,  for instance , Google Search Console gives you statistics for Google only  and therefore the  same for Bing.
  • Personally, I consider webmaster statistics  vital , especially for bloggers who  depend on  SEO, as  they provide  you special reports for each page separately, the keywords that visitors  wont to  access the blog and other information.

- Why are Google Analytics statistics different from Google Adsense?

Which  is totally  different from Blogger. AdSense statistics almost adopt  the identical  principle as Google Analytics statistics and are often close, except in some specific cases or the differences are somewhat limited. These differences  are often  reduced by linking the AdSense account to the Google Analytics account.
