I noticed since a few weeks that the rate of visitors/day has dropped down in an irrealistic manner. It went from about 5000 visitors/day to 5.

Did something change in the way it is counted or is it just a bug ?

  • It seems to be fixed by now!!!

This is a bug. The response from Stack Exchange so far:

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

See Traffic (views, visits) isn't correctly registered on Site Analytics or Area 51


Area 51 still looks broken however the network overview page seems to be working again (currently showing 4.5k/day).
