Default Stat discrepancies...

Anybody else see really gross discrepancies between stats? For some stats, I'm being charged well over half of what I see in my tracker. I'm seeing anywhere from 13% to 18% to even 60% fewer clicks than what they claim to be giving me (TV in this case).

Anybody else? Check yo shit.

Kinda tough to justify a bigger ad spend...

I check my traffic source stats and tracker stats all day long every day. I don't see any red flags.

Alright... thats what I thought. I usually get only max 10% as well from what I've seen.

In these instances I'm using an LP. Think that makes a difference?

Hmm ... I'm not really sure on that. It is possible that there may be some loss in the impression count when LP is used 'coz JavaScript is involved.

I checked my stats of last month for LP campaigns. The variance for all campaigns is pretty much same as direct link campaigns (5-10 %), except for one campaign which was 20-25%.

That's immensely useful info. Thanks. Were you using t202/p202?

Interesting. I'm going to modify it a bit and see what happens. I downloaded yslow for firefox and I'm going to try to further optimize...

FWIW, the discrepancy between TV stats and my tracker stats for impressions is almost always extremely small, like 1-2% max. I'm using my own software, and anytime the discrepancy gets to 5% or more, it almost always means a technical problem on my side. Also be sure to consider time zone differences if relevant.
