StatCounter Celebrations!

We are thrilled to announce that the StatCounter founder, Aodhan Cullen, has been named the Young IT Person of the Year at the ICT Excellence Awards!

Aodhan set up StatCounter at 16 years of age. A born entrepreneur, he has been running businesses of various kinds from the age of 12 when he set up his own résumé-typing business.

As a young teen, Aodhan dabbled in website design. It was this experience that sowed the seeds for him to develop StatCounter.

“The website is fantastic – thanks Aodhan…but is anyone actually visiting it?”

In response to this question which was repeatedly asked by his web design clients, Aodhan decided to set up StatCounter.

StatCounter currently has over 1.3 million members and tracks 9 billion pageloads per month across its network of 2 million websites.

In the words of one of the latest StatCounter members “if you want a counter that’s easy to install, easy to understand, provides many important stats for your website, that’s invisible, and free, you would do well to give StatCounter a try”.

    Congrats man! You rock!!! 🙂

  12. Daniel Land says:

    I think Aodhan has done a great job on his own and this silly award does not reach the same level. The work is great irrespective of who writes it on a shiny trophey and tells it to the media. I think the ‘excellence awards’ are just trying to pinch some of the success and ride with the glory that lingers around real good service.

  14. Congratulations!


  15. Thanks for the information. This is very useful

  16. Helmut says:

    I agree with Daniel Land that some awards are just hanging onto the coat tail of a real winner.

    But the next award Aodhan can win is a true measure of his achievement:

    Vote for him! Helmut

  17. Many congrats and may Statcounter’s success continue !

    Keep up the great work and best of luck for the future.

    You told: “if you want a counter that’s easy to install, easy to understand, provides many important stats for your website, that’s invisible, and free, you would do well to give StatCounter a try”!

    You don’t know how right you’re with that. In the beginning of requesting counting tools from my mates I was thinking a lot about the possibilities. We tried out some pay-services, but is till today the best opportunity.

    THANKS A LOT Aodhan!
