Reviewing analytic from a third party service... On the Audience report.

What could cause this?

Hi Chris,

No logic behind this. Number of sessions always exceeds number of users. Also, the graphical run of data looks quite different. Very unprobable that it's the same data set ... Any idea?

The image is a snippet from the Audience Overview Report... The only thing I can attribute is an implementation issue. The developer is passing NonInteraction:1 with the initial pageview. I have never seen or would think this would work. nonInteraction has always been reserved for Event Tracking.

Hi Chris,

yes, that's right - it goes with event tracking (nonInteraction: true). What is your domain? We might take a look at it.
