I wouldn't call it a bug. I don't necessarily think we should expect Forem to reflect the logic of GA πŸ˜‰ and I think there's value in both datasets, if you can understand how each of them is acquired.

The issue is that GA's data collection isn't 100% transparent, so it's hard for us to tell you why they're collecting different data to us.

The real question from a community management perspective is: why does this data matter to you?

If you understand the reasons why you're collecting your data, then you can determine which data set is more valuable for that purpose.

I completely agree; I don't believe we should compare data to GA. I was only giving the stats and attempting to comprehend the rationale. So that if someone asks me a question, I can honestly answer it.

Now I have the answer :). Thank you for the support.
