Inconsistency in the tracking code

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Google analytics notifies me of a problem of inconsistency in the tracking code.
But by testing with the tool "Diagnostics" I have no error.


The particularity is that I have two accounts analytics for a site A and site B, but only one Adwords account for both sites A and B. I think the error message just came from there, but I wonder if this message has no effect and is only the result of this rather particular configuration?

Hi Frederic
It depends on what the error is Smiley Happy You never mentioned what it was.
If you shared it, we might be able to provide a little more assistance.

HI Dave,


Thank you for your answer.
Here is the message:

The ad's destination URL AdWords, the #### AdWords account, records a number of clicks much higher than the number of Google Analytics sessions. Hits AdWords and Google Analytics sessions should be pretty close. However, if your site is not properly configured, it is possible that the number of sessions ad is inaccurate.

In addition, the accuracy of your AdWords reports may be compromised if the sessions are not correctly attributed to your AdWords campaigns.

The differences between the number of clicks and sessions can have several causes.

In this case, the landing page is not on any hostnames that this website keeps track:
