    1. LOVE Statcounter!! I refer you all to everyone.

      What stats do you look at most often and why?

      I look at visitor path and page view mostly. It helps me see what the customer is looking for and how they found my site.

      How often do you check your stats?

      I tend to agree with everyone else, statcounter is sooo addicting! I do check hourly; sometimes even more often than that. By the way; chatting on the phone is certainly not a problem for me πŸ™‚

    2. We are a Hybrid Installation and sales company,, offering High End Elecronics, Home Automation, Intercoms, Video and door access systems etc…. We have been using Statcounter for the last 2 years and FREAKIN LOVE IT… I check our stats ever hour or so and i agree its definately addicting. Since using statcounter we have been able to monitor page popularity on new items etc, and we manage our inventory based on these visits. We also use quite frequntly the Came From, Page activity and more. Our online store is under construction so if you need to see it email me for the password.


    3. OK before a start I love Statcounter-use it on a few sites.

      Ok its a small thing but I had to mention it. Typo in your posting


      Small thing but it does make a difference in the overall impression.

      StatCounter Team Response:

      Thanks Dave! All fixed now. πŸ˜‰

    4. I am a work-at-home mom with an online retail site, Good for the Kids, offering products for children and women. I focus on products that are unique and hard-to-find. Together with designers, I have developed my site to cater to the needs of my customers whom are primarily mothers to young children.
      StatCounter has helped me tremendously in the aspect of understanding my customers. As soon as I find that someone has posted in a blog or made a comment somewhere online from the information provided in StatCounter, I can go immediately and learn about the potential customers. Many times, I offer coupon codes to the customers on the discussion board or blog to entice them to complete their orders while they are searching for the items they are buying.
      I have also used StatCounter to understand problems with my site and quickly fix the issues to gain more satisfied customers. I check the StatCounter site, specifically the Vistor Path section, numerous times a day.
      I’d love to help you out in any way you need. Please contact me if I can be of assistance.

    5. I use the StatCounters to keep track of how may folks have looked at our puppy pictures when we have puppies up for sale. It really helps us gauge how effective the site has been, Its been very effective. I love the tie-in with Google maps. I use Firefox with the auto-reloader plug-in and keep it up in different tabs all the time to keep up to the minute whats happening..
      I look at the visitor path and usually , recent page loads, and have them all set to auto-reload every minute. then, once in a while I look at more detailed info. Thanks for a great service !!!! If you want to call and interview me, would love to talk to you..

    6. I am a website designer and have used StatCounter for the past few years. I place a Statcounter on EVERY website that I design.

      By using Statcounter each customer can evaluate which advertising method may be working better than others, as well as where their primary audience is coming from, etc. I also use it to evaluate how well certain content may be doing and perhaps what may need to be tweaked.

      The Statcounter quite honestly is invaluable and I have not looked at another provider of this service since I came across you!

      I always recommend Statcounter to others who inquire of ways to discover how much traffic their site may be receiving.

      I have several “main” clients that I perform SEO work for and I normally at least check their stats on a daily basis. This is in addition to the clients also checking their own stats for themselves. πŸ™‚

      Again, great service!


    7. I too love Statcounter. I check stats hourly to see where my visitors are coming from and what products my customers are most interested in. I personalize dog and cat collars at and check “recent visitor activity” as well as “visitors path” most often.

    8. I think of my little shop, as that enchanting neighborhood shop on the web. It is a home-made, home-cooked, home-based business with all the delightful flavors of a small shop often found in street corners of anybody’s neighborhood. Shopdrops.Com offers quality goods for the family, home, garden and for the very important person who does almost all the shopping at home.

      StatCounter has helped a lot in improving my home-business. Statcounter gives me real time statistics on who is visiting, where a visitor is coming from, the length of time spent on the site, the pages visited and the search engine who is best in referrals.

      I love the ‘Recent Visitor Activity’ and the Recent Keyword Activity. Why? The former shows what my visitors are up to – what particular products they looked at, where they are located, which page they landed on and which page they exited from. The latter tells me which search words are popularly used and which search engine is used the most.

      I value the stats from statcounter. The stats I get motivate me to improve my site building skills, challenge me to better my position in the SERPS and simply open my eyes to my weaknesses and flaws as a site-builder-owner.

      I love Statcounter. It is the loyal companion to my site. Truth is, it’s the first thing I do in the morning, last thing I do at night and every hour in between! And I am talking about both (Statcounter and my little shop)!
