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. I also have 2 counters, old and beta, on the same site. Old is now 77 today, beta is zero(0)! Until yesterday both was almost equal.

  2. I have 2 counters pointed 2 the same place – one of them is from the testing program,

    today test counter dropped 4 visits – something goes wrong?

  3. signed for testing.

    old – id – 3108166
    new id – 3276377

    Is this correct or did i do a mistake during the sign up process ??

  4. Dear StatCounter Team,

    Cool, Great Job. I am taking part in this testing.

  8. The new counter looks good, I like the increased log size and keyword analytics are improved. I do wonder about the difference in number of visits between the old counter and the beta version. Sometimes the beta shows higher visitor numbers a day, sometimes lower. It’s hard to find out about the differences, I do hope both versions will get more closely related in number of visitors before the new code will be brought to alpha stage.

  9. I always like this statcounter which will show the excellent statistics of the website.

    Thank you statcounter team , i hope more things are going to come and hope very good widgets and good links to the bloggers also soon.


    i use this in

    and more thanks once again for providing this free also
