NEW: Restricted Public Stats

With StatCounter you have always had the option to make your StatCounter stats public. This feature allows you to provide visitors to your site with a link to view all your StatCounter stats.

Further to many requests we have now implemented Restricted Public Stats. This option allows you to provide visitors to your site with a link to view only the “Summary Stats” page of your StatCounter stats.


To enable/disable public stats:

  • Log in to your StatCounter account.
  • Click the ‘lock’ icon beside your project name.


  • Click your preferred option
    • Public Stats are Disabled
    • Only Summary Stats Are Public
    • All Stats Are Public
  • If you are making your stats public, note the URL to use to send visitors to your StatCounter account e.g.…project_id=xxxxxx&guest=1
  • Click ‘Upgrade Project Access’ and that’s it!

    would be good if public can view the stats abt hotspot pages only…

    Does anyone know why on some projects I have a “view downloads” option and on some others I don’t have it?
    As it happens, the option is only available for those sites where I have no downloads and viceversa (!?)

  3. It’s rocks, i will try this service. Thanks

    powerful,could be a good thing.


  6. Everyone needs to keep in mind, that those of you that allow other ppl to view the stats in it’s entirity, you are placing many ppl at risk for cyber attacks…. If you click on the “receient page activity” tab, you’ll notice that the individual’s IP address is also listed…Though many are using a proxy, many more are not…With just the IP alone, if a person knows what they are doing, they can very easily wreck havoc….I’m not tring to tell you all how to manage your sites, but it’s just a word of warning…

    Blessed Be Peaceful Journey

  7. If i ever need to display stats to public, i will choose restricted access. Not all stats should be make public as it may go either way. (My Views) Yes there is no harm in displaying number of visitors daily. i welcome “Summary Stats” feature of statcounter.

    Good work.

  8. Very nice. I am trying to understand how publicizing my stats could help . . ..

  11. Great service. I will use this. Thanks

  12. Another good to restricted public stats. I like this

  13. Very nice, i will try to use it

  14. I like it. Before i didn’t want others to know where my traffic was coming from.

  15. Thanks a lot for the upgrade, I think This is what enough for the General public to know about our website, and it will restrict any geeks and competitors from knowing about our Keywords etc,

  16. great new feature but I agree with a poster above. It would be nice to have an embeddable widget!
