Help: Confused With My Report

Hi Guys, I'd love your input here. Here is my site http://reedfashionmag.com/

 

The question: Should the search data in Search Console tally with Google Analytics data?

 

I had 66 and 69 clicks on Sat(21st) and Sun(22nd) respectively as indicated by Search Console. This converts to 27 and 11 sessions for the two days respectively. Is this normal? Or, is there anything that I'm missing out?

 

Thanks

Hi :-)
Two different methods of tracking
Google analytics doesn't track all site data. There are a number of situations where visitors won't be tracked .. for example if a visitor doesn't have javascript enabled.
Search Console data is not tracked by GA. Its tracked by Search Console and then imported into GA.
There is some info in the help docs about these differences

and an article by one of the Certified Partner Companies - Lunametrics
