    1. -A bit of information about your business
      My site’s not really a business.

      -How using StatCounter has helped improve your business, specifically:
      Not yet, I just started. But I’m sure it will help me improve!

      -What stats do you look at most often and why?
      I look at the unique first time visitors because I want to know how many unique visits a day I get, it will REALLY help me!

      -How do the stats help you?
      Well, if I’m looking for affiliates and they have specific rule about how many unique visits you should get a day, I can’t really apply since I don’t know how many.But now I do! ^-^

      -How often do you check your stats?
      -More than 5 times every day! lol

    2. Statcounter has helped me know whether I was getting real clicks or if it was spiders and bots clicking. I can tell by the time spent on my site when it says “0 seconds” and I recieved some fake clicks from some well known sites and statcounter helped me see that. They help me know where people are hitting my site from and what are the refferring sites. I am very pleased with the service.

    3. A bit of information about your business: features home decor, furniture and accessories for the home.

      How using StatCounter has helped improve your business, specifically:
      What stats do you look at most often and why?
      I check the summary constantly to find out how many visitors are coming and the recent keyword activity to see what keywords are used to find my site. Being small, I rely on the traffic stats to let me know how to prioritize my time. If the traffic is high, I know I need to be available for customers and work on things that do not require as much concentration. If the stats are low, I know I can devote my time to more detailed work with minimal interruptions or step out of my office for awhile.

      How do the stats help you?
      Gosh, let me count the ways! First, Statcounter is simple. I have very detailed stats with my ecommerce platform and I also have Google analytics. The problem is they are very complex and I haven’t had the time to sit and learn how they work completely. With Statcounter, just a couple clicks and I have the info I need. The recent keyword activity tells me what is working. It also helps me identify trends. Using the keyword activity and popular pages information, I can decide when to run promotions. The information provided by Statcounter also helps me identify what areas I need to improve upon and what areas are not working at all.

      How often do you check your stats?
      Several times a day. It is not uncommon for me to bring up Statcounter and refresh the screen every 30 minutes to an hour.

      Statcounter is awesome. It’s reliable and hassle free. I’ve used it for a few other websites over the years and I cannot recall ever having a single issue with Statcounter. I can’t say that about any other tool I have used. It’s perfect for people who lack the time needed to devote to analyzing their site. It’s kind of like “stats for dummies”. I find the stats on Statcounter are more reliable than the stats provided by my ecommerce solution. I always recommend Statcounter, it is an awesome tool.

    4. I love Stat counter too much and i’ve been tempted to changed few months ago ( because of the small logs ) BUT when you added the 500 entires logs i was really amazed and i decided to stay with the Statcounter big family

      I’ve been blogging for many months ago and i was trying to monetize my half-million daily visitors thru Adsense but i didn’t got more than $50 per month so i’ve got a unique idea to create a unique advertising concept.
      I’m selling permanent traffic redirections that sends my traffic to the advertisers sites and blogs.
      I couldn’t have started my business if i was using another stats analyzing site because generally advertisers are interested with the concept but they are not sure about the ROI so by using the statcounter’s public stats they can see the live traffic stats and can drill down to get more info about the visitors. this encouraged many advertisers to buy my “retail traffic”

      For me personally i check my stats 2 times a day to have precise idea on the keywords used and the biggest referrers so i can target my ad campaigns

      The most helpful feature is the ip flagging because it allows me to track back the return of the my biggest advertisers so i can see what they are interested in and if there is any comment so i can improve the service.

      Thanks and keep up the great work ๐Ÿ˜‰

    5. Another site that was helped greatly by statcounter stats recently was

      We found out from the stats that alot of people were going through to a certain part of the shopping cart process and then justs topping so it has helped us figure out the weak link in our chain and we now know where tos tart with improvements

    6. – A bit of information about your business

      Well i have several online ventures but mainly web design, i design sites for others as well as having several of my own selling custom php scripts and i have a few article directories and link directories too.

      – How using StatCounter has helped improve your business, specifically:
      – What stats do you look at most often and why?

      I look at the recent visitors, what pages they visit and where they came from, i use this info to check what parts of my sites are most effective, if they are leading to signups/sales etc and to check where the visitors are coming from so i can tell if my marketing efforts and search engine optimization is working, i also check the keyword stats to see what people are searching for then thye find my site and to improve my targeting.

      – How do the stats help you?

      The stats help me improve my sites, make pages more effective for their purpose so that visitors become customers etc, they help me judge if my marketing and advertising campaigns are working and if they are worth the money i spend on them and to see overall how many visitors i am getting compared to sales.signups etc

      – How often do you check your stats?

      I check my stats several times a day for over a dozen sites i run so that i can fully keep track of every aspect of my visitors activity and learn to understand them better and understand what they want, why they came etc

    7. – A bit of information about your business

      I run a small t-shirt company called Burn Suburbia Clothing that works with designers from around the world to create shirts that represent something about their city or its culture.

      * What stats do you look at most often and why?

      Statcounter is invaluable for my business! We rely mainly on viral marketing and publicity received from blogs, etc. As a result, Statcounter lets us know when we’re being covered somewhere new, so we look especially at what links people are clicking to reach the page.

      * How do the stats help you?

      It works the same way with the limited advertising we do; Statcounter is the barometer of our advertising’s success.

      * How often do you check your stats?


      Thank you so much for this fine product. Feel free to get in touch if you’d like to do a phone interview; I’d be happy to help.


    8. I am extremely happy with StatCounter as the data of the visitors can be viewed and evaluated from different angles. And the info makes it really possible to improve the number of hits and the ranking on the www. I am using the free 100 hits counting, but intend to try the 1000 hits counter for a couple of months this winter. Keep up the good work. Congratulations with the awards won and thanks for making StatCounter available for free and without annoying pop ups as other counters often do.
      Best regards,
