Hi everybody

I have set up referral spam filter and also excluded my company's IP

so it won't be counted in Google Analytics.

I just noticed that in the last 3 days I had 51 clicks in the Adwords interface but

Google Analytics reports on 5 sessions only

How is it possible?? even if we take in account the filters it still doesn't make any sense

Thank you for helping

No need to post in multiple categories. Categories are just for, well, categorization Smiley Happy
I've replied to your question in the other thread so going to close this one off if that's OK.
