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’s such a great feeling when you start getting those first results in! “Really? I had someone from Thailand AND Alabama to my site??!!”
    Thanks Statcounter

  2. Lets Beta-Test! I love beta testing 🙂
    It seems you improved already, my blocking cookie seems to work.

  3. I have been trialling the new stats but haven’t noticed any improvement in speed

  4. I use StatCounter and love the functionality and the downloadable logs.

    Beta is going well – MUCH faster loading.



  5. I love stat counter & will install a new beta testing project today. Will also encourage my new website clients in Cape Town to give it a go statcounter.

  6. SC4 looks interesting. I was wondering, once your quota of the 500 records are hit, that you simply archive the stats, email ’em to the user’s email, and then delete the stats (the records) and reset the stat quota to 0, and keep the amount of hits still intact. That way, it’s simple and effiencent.

    Other than that, I’m eager to test SC4 out.

  7. Testing the beta version, looking forward to seeing the exit link results. Great service… thanks!

  8. The stats are still showing very different results, about 5 numbers in difference between unique visitors
