I signed up for this a few days ago. Added the code to each page on my sites and used a third party programme to verify all was ok.

GA updates every 24 hours. Checked stats for 19 May and compared with web logs from 1&1. Quite a big difference, GA reports 14 total page views and 1&1 says 192.

Anyone else noticed a discrepency ?.

All the time. None of my stats mechanisms ever tally Grin

You will fine that no analytics programs will give you exactly the same results as they all work differently.

GA relys on users with javascript enabled (which is pretty all humans)
While programs such as AWstats crunch the actual server logs.

Also, make sure you have the GA code on all pages of your site.

I stopped using GA - thought it was total garbage and switched to stat counter which is way better.
