Traffic seems much lower than what it should be

I was recently asked to pull a 2015 report from GA on a website. GA has been tracking data all year round so it seems like all is setup correctly. However, the numbers seem very low. The website is for an event in 2015 that had 16,000 people register and participate yet GA is telling me that only 3,000 users visited the site in all of 2015. I don't get it. There are no view filters setup so it's not that. The site can be seen here: http://www.chwevents.org/site/TR?fr_id=1130&pg=entry

 

Any help or thoughts are greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Brent,

Your tracking code is not installed properly. Google Tag Assistant reports an error "No HTTP response detected". Please try to reinstall the tracking code. Hope this helps.

Well that's unfortunate. THANKS for the answer. Why would some traffic be showing up though?

Also, I just replaced the tracking code with a new block of code from GA. Does all look good to you now?

The tracking code is installed properly now.

The cookie domain in the old code was set to alsrun.com, maybe you have the same tracking code installed elsewhere?

alsrun.com is the domain we publicize but that just redirects to the URL I gave you above. Maybe it's very old code and the site used to sit at alsrun.com?? Well, thanks for your help! Much appreciated!
