yes, that's a big difference. I'd check to see if:

 

- are virtual page views being sent to one property, which are not being sent to the other?

- is one set of code present on a website, or pages, which the other is not? (check in the audience>technology>hostname report)

- are pages reported with additional parameters which one property is filtering away?

 

I would suggest exporting as much page view data as you can and then doing a side by side comparison of which are present, and which are missing, from the two GA properties. You'll find that the GA sheets tool remove duplicates will be of help.

Thanks Mr. Jhon.

 

I'v found the reason of the difference. the bot pages are not tagging with analytics.js, only ga.js. so there are the big difference of number of Pageview

Good stuff - keep monitoring it. Just out of interest - why are you still using older code? It's good practice to use the latest code snippet, not least because then you can take advantage of the lastest updates and it's easier to manage event tracking code etc.

Good luck!
