GA online does not match GA app or widget data

I have created an account for my website with Google Analytics. I also downloaded the app and connected my account to that and also to an app in wordpress (sumome). 


I'm seeing a ridiculous difference in what the app is reporting and what my online dashboard says and I don't understand how they can be different because they are the same account. Right now my online dashboard says I have 105 pageviews for January, while the app says I have almost 2,000. Even the JetPack widget installed on my site has the roughly 2,000 number. If someone can let me know what I'm doing wrong here that would be great. I'd love to be able to use the online dashboard but it doesn't seem to be reporting any of my traffic.
