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. This sounds like its going to be better, I use nothing but statcounter for analyzing my traffic. I will be putting the beta on my sites.

  2. I added the beta code as per your instructions. First day showed to function perfectly giving me some lectures beside the old one but on feb 29 did not work at all. Give no reading at all!.

  3. Cannot wait for the new statcounter release. Have been using current one for over a year now and I love it. It is an addiction… I am wondering if you can use the old one and new one at the same time or it just would not make any difference.

  5. Since I spend most of the day on the statcounter anyway I will difinitely help with any testing. Speeding up the actual keyword loading would definitely help. Keep up the great work

  6. i cant believe that statcounter will even become bether in the future! you guys are already the very best! thx statcounter team!

  7. Looking forward to a great working relationship with you guys. If the new service is as good as the old, it will be fantastic. Count us in on the testing!

    Thanks ahead of time…

  8. Online dizi izle sitemize bekleriz beta sürümü çok beğendim anlamasamda beğendim 🙂

  9. Everything is not LOGGED Goemie, I’m running the old and new BETA counters and the BETA version only shows HALF the volume of the hits from yesterday ….

    but seems to be inline so far today …. but visits over the past few days are def. skewed ……

  10. The Beta counter is not logging since friday, they are working on it 🙂
    Everything is logged though, you only can’t see it (yet), like I said they are putting everything back in order.
    Take a look at the forum for more updated info 😉

  11. Beta died !!!! No hits being recorded, old one is still going strong …. whats up with that ???
