More Than 100% New Visitors on a Website?

Share on Facebook

I was also shocked to see this but Yeah this is true! This week, I notice that my blog is showing not only more than 100% in fact more than 500% “New Visits” traffic stats. First I thought a lot about it that how it’s possible. Is this a Google error or I’m not updated? But then I Google it and found techacid post also on the same topic, posted on 5th March’2009. Here are the snapshots of traffic stats:

Another Snapshot of 22nd March (Previous Day) Traffic Stats:

More Than 100% New Visitors

It’s not only the New Visits, it’s also showing the wrong numbers of total visitors as well, see the red marked portion in above pics. Now, few questions arises in my mind:

  • Is this happen in March month of every year as it happened in last year as well (approx. same time)?
  • OR is it a bug, available in Google Analytics forever?

I’ve posted about this issue on Google Analytics Help Forums as well and expecting a quick response from AnalyticsPro.Chris (Google Employee). Let’s see what Google is saying.

Am I the only one who is facing this issue now-a-days or there are more people. Let’s share…

    So Did you applied any solution julieweishaar OR as the time passes, Google make certain changes & solve the issue. Mine was solved after a month or so time period.

  6. Ankush Kohli says:

    Aanlove, this issue occur automatically, I searched a lot, also raised a query on Google Forums but didn't get any solution. In the meanwhile, analytics team resolve the error.

  8. Ankush Kohli says:

    Vintarah, I didn't do anything. It's Google's magic.

  9. Vintarah says:

    Really? But still you must have done something that make Google act so strangely like that, lol. Anyways, lucky you. I've been dreaming to see numbers like that in my Google analytics results. I'll have my time 🙂

    Hahaha! This was a glitch, nothing else, which is already correctly and I didn't see that again till now. BTW, My wishes are with your websites & analytics for same kind of stats. 🙂
