StatCounter Says NO!


A few months back, StatCounter was approached by an advertiser, offered lots of $$$, and asked to include a spyware cookie on all of our member sites…we refused on the spot.

You install StatCounter to track visitors to your site NOT to open yourself and your visitors up to being spied upon by phantom advertising corporations.

It appears, however, that other players in the world of webstats were happy to take up this offer…

We were shocked to discover just today that another well known stats provider is allowing up to 9 cookies to be installed in the browser of every visitor that hits one of their member websites. This means that the provider is making money by transmitting data on you and your visitors to a third party advertiser. Not only that, but to add insult to injury, the cookies are causing the member websites to load very slowly too.

In light of this, StatCounter wants to assure you that we track your visitors for you, only you and not any one else.

Which provider would you prefer??

  19. mstransky says:

    Thank you stat counter, I hold my clients websites big and small for keeping spyware from them and the visitors. I like that I can create one account and monitor each client as a project under my account.

    I am in the process of dumping said such other trackers and want to spy companies codes & offers.

    It would be a great thing if you had a directory engine! Many of us think you can give bigger sites a run for the money with loyal user support!

    Again, Thank you!
