analytics goals vs internal tracking

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Does anybody have any explanation for this:

 

I see 2 conversions for yesterday in my GA account, 0 in my Adwords. GA reports that they came from referal and direct. Yet in our internal system we recorded 3 orders. 2 of which match the order amount we see in GA. I pulled a past 30 days report in AdWords and none of the orders via that channel match the amount reported internal...

 

has anybody encountered this problem? if so what could be the issue?

 

Thanks

Sounds like there may be an error on one of your goal locations. I would check where that goal was fired on your website and do some debugging. If you don't see conversions in AdWords try making sure GA is connected and importing a click assisted conv. column.

This is not a consistent thing. some days it tracks correctly.
