StatCounter Celebrations!

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”.

    coming back – in name – loving it
    Also using the paid service.

    on it and you – hope i didn`t scared you 🙂

  7. “We actually keep Statcounter as our homepage as we check on our stats several times each day” (Michael, above).

    Absolutely right. Before anything else I go to StatCounter, because it enables me to respond immediately to any visitor activity, even in the most obscure corners of my sites, and I know right away who has been there and who needs some attention. No other counters provide this info in such detail. Gongrats again.

  8. Congratulations Aodhan,

    You provide a great service, which we have been using for 3 years now and we find it really useful. We actually keep Statcounter as our homepage as we check on our stats several times each day.

    Thank you again
