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.

Beta Update!

Hi all,

Firstly we want to thank all of you for your help so far with the new SC4 beta project – your feedback is invaluable and we are so grateful for the time you take to help us out. 🙂

Work continues on the beta project and we wanted to update you on progress:

  • Reliability and accuracy
  • We’re very pleased to let you know that we have been ironing out various bugs and other issues which were causing some trouble initially…the “new” StatCounter numbers should now be recording the same (or more!) hits than the “old” system. (The new system is even more fast-loading than our current system – this enables us to give you information even on visitors who drop by your site for the shortest time.)

  • Exit Links on the Magnify Page
  • Exits links have now been added to the “magnify” page – this allows you to see where individual visitors went when they left your site. (IP Blocking for the exit links has also been enabled!)

    In addition to the above, we’ve been working on new features and improvements and we’ll be in touch about these as they are released.

    Please continue to keep us posted with your views, thoughts and ideas about the beta – you can post here in the blog or you can register for our forum and post your feedback there.

    Thanks again for all the help so far folks – please keep it up!!

    Sincerely,

    The men (& women!) hard at work at StatCounter 😉

    PS: You can still sign up for the beta project here!

    PPS: Good luck to any women proposing today, given the day that’s in it!
