Re: How Accurate is Google Analytics

To reply the query of how accurate Google Analytics is base on how one describes correctness. Is it precision in terms of measuring page views? Precision in terms of measuring site behavior? Accuracy in terms of whether a user truly visits the site and does some kind of activities? Unluckily, there is no infallible answer. Remember that Google Analytics' precision depends on how quick a site loads and whether the Analytics code was implemented correctly. If you have properly embedded the Google Analytics Tracking cipher and your site is good designed to load as quickly as possible, then Google Analytics will accurately measure your site data and performance.
