Massive discrepancy between Google analytics and Squarespace Analytics

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have observed a huge discrepancy between the Squarespace Analytics and the Google Analytics results. Please see the screenshots below. Since the end of August, I am now using GA to compare with Squarespace. However, this is a massive difference with Squarespace reporting 10x more traffic than GA and I can't figure out why.

Can anyone explain this? Which results are likely to be more reliable?

The red warning in your screenshot may partially explain the issue because analytics will not be accurate for site visitors who didn't accept Squarespace Analytics cookies.

the opt-in & out option is selected, which should disable cookies until the visitor accepts them.

This will disable Squarespace Analytics cookies until they are accepted but it has no effect on GA.
