Calling all Volunteers!!

Hi Folks,

New StatCounter System – In Beta

We have been working on the new and improved StatCounter SC4 system…now we need your help to test it.

A lot of changes have been made ‘under the hood’ and won’t be immediately apparent; however some of the immediate benefits include:

  • Faster Loading Keyword and Country Stats
  • Exit Link Stats
  • Download Stats

Testing… Testing… 123…

MOST importantly the new system paves the way for other exciting new features … so watch this space!

How do I try out SC4?

It’s easy!

You need to create a new test project. This code should be added underneath your existing StatCounter code.

Note that you should retain your existing StatCounter code for now… Once the new system is fully operational we’ll convert all projects over to SC4 automatically.

To get started:

  • Login to StatCounter with the “remember me” option
  • Point your browser at this URL
  • If successful the form should now read “BETA TEST SC4 PROJECT SETTINGS” then proceed as normal to install this new code below your current code.

(Note that if you logout and login again you will be directed back to the current StatCounter system.)

Thanks for your help with this – and we’d be delighted to have your feedback posted to the comments of this blog post.

UPDATE: Thanks for all the feedback so far. As the comments are getting a bit crowded we’ve created a new forum for you to discuss your ideas. Please click here to get talking about SC4! (Note: you need to register a forum account in order to post.)

Let the testing begin!

  1. It will be nice to get exit link in the drill down for a visitor too eventually. this is a nice feature and seems to work very well 🙂

  2. Search Engine Wars seems to count the old stat though and show it in the new stats, seems like a little bug 🙂

  3. Back to SC after a while away, it whacks anything else. Mmmm….so let’s see what this new thingamabob is.

  4. How would you like us to give you feedback? Email, blog comments, Flickr photo pool, singing telegram?

    StatCounter Team Response:

    Hi Jen,

    No need for the singing telegram – but thanks for the offer 😉

    You can post your feedback to the comments here!

  6. I am ready to start testing SC4! Nice to see Statcounter is going forward. It will be good if you guys can provide Stat History too.

  7. I will be glad to help my favorite statistics service. I am doing it now.

    I have a question: Do we have a benefit from this new application?

  8. Hola Andylat,
    Aqui tienes la traducción de las instrucciones.
    Un saludo,


    To get started:
    Para empezar:

    Iniciar sesión en Statcounter con la opción “remember me” seleccionada.
    Despues abre esta dirección URL
    Si lo has echo bien, en el formulario debería poner “BETA TEST SC4 PROJECT SETTINGS” si es asi, continua normalmente para instalr este nuevo código debajo de tu código actual.
    (Ten en cuenta que si cierras sesion y vuelves a entrar, te mandara de vuelta al sistema de StatCounter actual.)

    Gracias por vuestra ayuda con esto – esperamos recibir vuestros comentarios.

    ¡Que comience el testeo!

    El equipo de StatCounter.
