Incorrect data supplied by Google Analytics[ Edited ]
July 2016 - last edited July 2016
I think we are having an issue with the reports I am receiving from Google Analytics.
Every Tuesday I analyse data regarding popular pages on our Wordpress through Google Analytics and each week it comes up with the home page, about us and a blog posted 5 months ago as the three most popular pages. Every week we post a blog and every week we post that link to our Facebook, Twitter and Linked In accounts. I am aware from the analytics on these other sites that we are getting far more engagement on these blogs than the blog that hasn't been posted on social media in 5 months.
Has anyone else had issues with incorrect data being displayed in Google Analytics? Does anyone know how we can fix it?
Thanks in advance!
Re: Incorrect data supplied by Google Analytics
Have you looked more closely at the 5 month old blog and it's traffic sources?
Go to Behavior>>Site Content>>Landing Pages then select your blog post in question and pull in a secondary dimension of source/medium.
I suspect the old post got indexed and it doing well in organic search or is being reshared and there is nothing wrong with Google Analytics.
