    This isn't programming, but I figured this thread is most suitable for this forum.

    First of all, I don't use google adwords, i'm posting this for someone else.

    Here's the google bill:
    Google Stats

    Here's 2 sets of stats from different scripts/programs:

    Other stats

    There was awstats aswell but it was basically the same as the above.

    As you can see, 270 clicked the link on google acording to them, but the stats software seems to produce differently.

    June: ~22
    July: (Didn't show up for some reason, because there were no hits?)
    Aug: 1 (which was me checking checking the stats hadn't broke)

    Where did Google get 270 from?

    Either, they are making it it up.
    Or, the stats software (ours) is borked.

    Anyone else use Adwords and had any experience with the above?

    Argh I used to use some great software which ran on your site and tracked Adwords visitors, but I can't for the life of me remember it.

    Tactic: Make your Adwords URLs unique, www.site.com?srcaw&foo=bar or something. Then you can present the raw logs to Google. Infact get google analytics and setup its adwords integration:)
