On a whim today I decided to look at the site analytics for Parenting. Most things appeared to be about where I thought they would (new questions, answers, votes, etc.). But the traffic analytics don't look correct. For a long period of time they show that the site has no traffic at all (obviously untrue, as I know I've been visiting, and the presence of new posts and votes had to come from somewhere). Then there is a large spike for a week or two then it peters back down to nothing.

Also, looking at the traffic sources shows nothing (including some NaN errors, probably divide by zero errors). So am I just crazy or am I misunderstanding how something works or is it really broken? And if it is broken, how do we report this so it can get addressed?

  • It looks like it. Every beta site’s views per day are all messed up. I believe the issue has been raised on Meta.SE. Commented Apr 30, 2018 at 11:44
  • I added a link (for those that don't know how to get to site analytics) and a pic (for those who can't).

As you and Anne noted in comments, this seems to be SE-wide. This Meta.SE quetion includes this bit from a developer in the answers:

We're investigating, we've had a number of large changes to our Google Analytics infrastructure, looks like we missed some bits...
