Google analytics suddenly started tracking only some of my conversions

Hello,

 

I have been using Google AdWords and Google Analytics for some time now and everything has been fine so far. This month I started noticing that Analytics doesn't track all of my conversions, their number has increased since the previous months, but still it is not a high number at all. One of the days I had 4 conversions before noon, but Analytics had tracked only 2 of them. Is it possible that when the conversions happen at almost the same time Analytics can not differentiate them?

What can the problem be?

 

Thank you and good day!

Timing is not an issue - you can send multiple hits simultaneously and they will appear in Google Analytics. What exactly are the conversions? Are they ecommerce hits or a goal based on, for example, a URL? One tricky thing with goals is that the same goal can only be triggered once per session, per user. This is not to say that the same user cannot trigger multiple different goals in the same session.

 

If your goal is URL or event based I would check to see if the URLs or events are actually being reported - if they are, then the issue could be with your goal set-up.
