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”.



  1. I’m a big fan of Aodhan! Love your work, which is getting greater and greater! And it’s everything that SE can’t achieved.

  2. Excellent work Aodhan and congratulations.

    I’ve been using Statcounter for the past two years and find it one of the best site stats there is.

    Keep up the great work and best of luck for the future.

  3. I agree with Daniel Land that some awards are just hanging onto the coat tail of a real winner.

    But the next award Aodhan can win is a true measure of his achievement:

    Vote for him! Helmut

  5. I think Aodhan has done a great job on his own and this silly award does not reach the same level. The work is great irrespective of who writes it on a shiny trophey and tells it to the media. I think the ‘excellence awards’ are just trying to pinch some of the success and ride with the glory that lingers around real good service.

  6. Thanks for the great news! Well done Aodhan! Congratulations!
