Hi Guys,

I don't get this.
In Google Analytics I am showing 80 visitors to my site last 30 days.

Yet in Google search it's showing 2 clicks and 868 impressions.

How can Google search be so far behind the analytics and which do I believe?

    It is quite possible that people are getting to your site via something other than search - especially if one of those people is YOU and you have not filtered your IP address(es) out from the search data.

    Check visits from "Organic search" on Anaytics.
    Google Search Console shows only traffic from Google

    Yes, The search console result is ok. Impressions mean - How many links to your site a user saw on Google search results when they use Google search engine by any keyword. So when people search for anything by google search engine, your site link had visited 868 times. and 2 people click your page through impression.

    To Improve your keyword you will get more impression and People visit your page by your organic keywords.

    Thanks

    There is nothing wrong with both results my dear. The impressions you are receiving explains how often the links to your site are seen by searchers. Mostly they search using any of the keywords you may have used. Then the 2 means that only 2 people finally decided to check your stuff.

    It might be the total traffic in Google Analytics. Go and check the acquisition channel overview in the GA. You can get the number of traffic as channel wise. You can see only organic traffic in Google search console.

    Do you have such a small visit to the site. It seems to me that you have ignored something.

    I think the point the OP was making is that they believe that Google is inaccurately stating that only two people visited the site when 80, in fact, did.

    He is confusing search traffic with overall traffic. Many may have visited from social posts, some may have been direct visits from friends and a ton of them may be himself, admiring his own site or scrutinizing it. And, as others pointed out, some may have come from other search engines (though doubtful it would cause that much disparity).

    The truly bad number is 2 clicks out of 868 impressions (2/10 of a percent click-through rate). That suggests that your title tag is not attracting attention and/or your meta description is not compelling people to click. Or, that Google is showing a page on your site that is not at all relevant to the search query. That soon sorts itself out and your rankings fall because of it.

    For 80 visitor, where is they come from ?
    - organics
    - referral
    - direct link
    - or advertising?

    Above parameter its important, so you can know more your visitor come from. If you know more detail about visitor, you can optimise further your site for the best performance. Use the analytics data as your parameter to improve site rank, so that you can get more click.
