Traffic declineWhy is that every site I've used Clicky on sees a decline in the weeks following my tracking? This account saw a 77% decline in traffic in the month following. About the same with other accounts I've added. The sites are all different topics so I'm not sure why they'd ALL go down.

Yup, same for me. We are missing hits or gaining from other stat trackers.
Would appreciate clicy's thoughts

Hmmm, that sounds strange. Wonder if that is real traffic loss or just dropped hits. I like Clicky's info, but if its false data, what's the point?

My hit data is pretty much identical on both Clicky and Google Analytics - although keywords sometimes throw up quite different results.

I haven't seen this in any of the sites that I monitor. Unless you have data from another source to back it up, I can only assume it's normal.
As for Y4Food's missing hits, yes we do miss hits sometimes, but so do other trackers. You will see data in Clicky that is missing from another service like sitemeter or statcounter.

Just to note, we were seeing around 10% more hits in statcounter, but because clicky is far more usable data, this is the information we give our partners to measure.
