Amazon & Google Statistics

I’ve been analyzing results from both Amazon & Google click throughs with my own stats tracking software PageFoo, and the results are interesting.

  1. Amazon is not that accurate when compared to Apache Logs & my own stat software. It usually errors on the low side.
  2. Google is a little worse when compared to both Apache Logs & my own stat software. Again, erring on the low side.

This makes me wonder the accuracy of reporting and conversion on low traffic blogs & websites trying to make money through Amazon Affiliates, or WebSense.

If you have the same problem comment on this thread.
