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”.
Congratulations Aodhan and StatCounter. I have to admit I spend more time at this site monitoring my visitors than I do my own site updating the content!
This site would be impressive if done by someone in their 40s or more,
but for someone to do this when under 25 even, it’s just quite incredible.
Statcounter is one of the most useful (and beautifully functioning) offerings I’ve seen on the Internet, and it’s great to see that you have such integrity in your handling of everything. Thanks for saying No to the advertiser cookies.
Congratulations! I will pass this on to others at pbase.com as many of us there are using statcounter and, as an inevitable result, recommending it to others.
Thanks again for a great app, and it’s nice to see excellent work actually acknowledged.
Wow! Congratulations! Good for you you are exposed to the net at an early age.
Aodhan Congrats! Excellent news!
You really have created a great site. Thank you very much. I was getting discouraged because I wasn’t getting a lot of comments–but your site revealed that many, many people were visiting, from many, many countries. That gave me new encouragement to go further than ever, so thank you (and my readers thank you too…)
Wow, well done! I have no idea that he was that young.
I didn’t know you were so young! Kudos indeed, and congratulations!
Go on ya boy ya! Aodhan – you have to be Irish! Congratulations a million times over.
I would also like to add my congratulations and salutations to you.
Its always lovely to receive recognition for a job well done, and long may you continue to forge the way ahead.
My very best wishes.
