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. Hello Webmaster,

    The percentage off the old counter and the new counter are not the same. I’ts now 12:7 ???

    Greetings and go on,

    Dirk, Holland

  2. is game 🙂 along with many of our members who are using statcounter.

  3. We started the new statcounter today on our web site

  4. Installed Beta yesterday.

    Today at this time the existing counter shows 104

    The beta shows 166 ????

    Maybe a problem.

  5. I haven’t been beta testing, just checked in here to see what might be the problem with the regular version. For about two days now I can no longer get Statcounter with Firefox, my usual browser. Instead I have to use MSIE.

  6. I’m now a tester, i hope you’re so glad to upgrade my account for more than 100 visitors. 🙁 It woud be great!!!, and.. i wanna know if my old staticst don’t loss when you start the new system.


  7. I notice that the IP Blocking does not seem to work yet on the Beta Counter. A gap is being digged by me between the two counters (standard and old) correctly configured for blocking my own IP.

  8. I have installed the Code on my Home Page!!! Will update you with the latest stats

  9. I just installed both the old and the SC4 counter on my brand new site. Let’s see what happens next. Keep up the very good work at SC. Cheers
