SC4 Conversion!

Thank you one and all for your invaluable help and feedback as we developed, tested and improved the new SC4 system!

We are delighted to let you know that conversion to the new system will begin this weekend…

What’s new in SC4?

  • Exit link tracking – to allow you track the destinations of visitors leaving your site
  • Download stats – to allow you track stats for pdf and other files available on your site
  • Faster-loading country stats
  • Improved reliability and redundancy
  • Improved loading speed of StatCounter code
  • Greater technical flexibility to allow for continued system improvements

Do StatCounter members need to do anything?
No! Our tech team will be doing all the work so you don’t have to lift a finger!

Other information
Partition 3 (c4) will be the first partition to be converted. Conversion will take place this weekend when traffic is generally lower and is expected to take a number of hours.

During conversion, stats will continue to be recorded BUT access to stats will NOT be available. Full access will be restored asap and we will keep you updated on progress in the service status forum.

Please note that if any unexpected problems are encountered during the conversion process, the partition will be returned to the current system to limit the disruption to members. Another conversion attempt will then be made at a later date.

New Projects Created

Note that all new StatCounter projects created from this point, will automatically be created as SC4 projects.

Please feel free to post below!

    thank you wery much

  5. Hooray!

    So this means too we can delete any extra codes we had implemented for the beta?

    TRUE !

  6. Has this been implemented yet for those of us who did not put new code onto our sites?

    I keep looking for a navigation link to the downloaded .pdf’s and dont see any. Is that how it will work?

    Or will these .pdf results show in the individual visitor activity logs?

    Should I just change the code on my site to the new SC4?

    I can’t wait for the exit page stats and that’s the only big thing that was missing from this service. I’ve been using this for 4 years now as my main webstats service and it’s going to be even more awesome!

    Congratulations on this move; your progress has been impressive.

    In the interest of maintaining that progression, I wanted to bring to your attention what we perceive as an unwelcome advertising ploy that you may need to investigate.

    During my tracking, the below is what came up, and I’m not happy to click on a site visit only to discover it’s advertising. And, I’d welcome any feedback from you and fellow users… (Road Runner Holdco Llc) [Label IP Address]

    The downloads tracking and also the automatic WHOIS lookup that’s giving company names beside the IP address are particularly useful. Thanks!

  14. Highwaymen says:

    Awesome, I can’t wait!

  15. How can this service still be free…its incredible that you have added so many features yet still charge us “lovers of statcounter” nothing. Thanks for the great work!

  22. FLV says:

    So you mean if I want to trace the new feature “exit link ” and “download link”, I need to create a new project and install new code ? How about my old code ? I don’t want to abandon it because i need the old data.

    WOW – i am just waiting for this.
    Google Anyaltics was used only because it was having Exit Tracks.
    Now statcounter will also has this feature.
    Statcounter will become number one very soon.
