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??

StatCounter says No!

By the way, welcome to our new blog 😉


  1. Great Job. You guys do have value over lots $$$. And those $$$ will keep on flowing long term, with this kind of higher attitude. I feel lucky and proud to use your services.

  2. Excelente, gracias por brindarnos este servicio y por su integridad. Escribo en español por que veo que puedes leerlo, Me alegro que traten de protegernos, ya que ultimamente he visto muchas webs que tienen mensajes emergentes, donde se instalan virus en nuestras pc, es demasiado fastidioso y pues peligros.


  3. Thank you StatCounter its great to know you care about your users and are NOT just a money making scam. 🙂
