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
    http://my.statcounter.com/project/standard/add.php?sc4=1
  • 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. Mine stopped logging any hits (including mine)…. the last recorded was on May 1st at 7:40am …. prior to that, it was me at 5:40am…..

    It gets worse…. my other site has the beta stats, and it stopped logging anything as of April 30th.

    Is anyone else having this problem or is it just me??? The codes are still the same… I did not do anything different to it.

    Any responses would be appreciated.

    Thank you in advance.

  2. I have noticed that there are some discrepancies between the beta counter and the original one. Today it missed a couple of visitors and about 7 page loads.

  3. Is it really possible to improve on something that already blows everything else away?

    This make things sooooooooo easy!
