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 would like to hook-up to the new beta set-up. There has got to be an easier way. I’m old school. Couldn’t a fill-in and click be set-up with authouization etc.

  2. Nice work guys! Like the way the system works, don’t let go. Visit my site Regards!!

  3. Hey! Nice work there Statcounter team! Kudos… I just finished installing the new stat code to my site. Hope beta testing goes fine for all of us. For the latest in mobile technology, visit . Cheers!

  4. Calling all Volunteers!! can be amazing material that you specified superb thanks for the insight!

  5. Great effort… I need to try this new StatCounter SC4 ASAP, but my site is still under construction and I hope to put the code within this month or early next month.

    Thanks for the good effort been done… I love the current statcounter and hope the new version statcounter much better then this.

  6. Not really sure what should happen with the Exit Links – I haven’t had any entries here since I installed the BETA version a few days ago. Are these for links on my site that leave for an external site? I only ever use ‘_blank’ property, so will I never see anything here?

  7. I don’t understand the discrepancy between the page views in SC3 and SC4. Is it due to user settings on their computer?
