getclicky vs. statcounter not matching upHello,
I have recently installed getclicky on two sites which also have statcounter installed on them.
Statcounter has been running on each site for quite some time and seems very stable.
I recently installed getclicky (within the last few weeks) because I like the interface and want more data for comparison.
However, in comparing getclicky visitor totals to statcounter visitor totals, I am observing some discrepencies that are making me question whether there is an issue with my getclicky installation on one of the sites.
Site1 over the last 7 days shows the following:
statcounter: 349 unique visitors
getclicky: 316 unique visitors
approximately 90% of the statcounter total being counted by getclicky, but still some difference between the two packages.
Site2 over the last 6 days (just installed get clicky prior) shows the following:
statcounter: 367 unique visitors
getclicky: 294 unique visitors
approximately 80% of the statcounter total being calculated by getclicky.
Both sites are running on wordpress and have getclicky's code installed using Joost de Valk's "Clicky for WordPress" plugin.
I would like to better understand why these discrepencies might be occurring and whether I have an installation issue or something else. Obviously, the differing 'difference' between the two packages on the two sites is what is most confusing.
I appreciate your insight. Please advise.

What about just "visitors" ? We may calculate uniques differently than they do.
