Beta Update!

Hi all,

Firstly we want to thank all of you for your help so far with the new SC4 beta project – your feedback is invaluable and we are so grateful for the time you take to help us out. πŸ™‚


Work continues on the beta project and we wanted to update you on progress:

  • Reliability and accuracy
  • We’re very pleased to let you know that we have been ironing out various bugs and other issues which were causing some trouble initially…the “new” StatCounter numbers should now be recording the same (or more!) hits than the “old” system. (The new system is even more fast-loading than our current system – this enables us to give you information even on visitors who drop by your site for the shortest time.)

  • Exit Links on the Magnify Page
  • Exits links have now been added to the “magnify” page – this allows you to see where individual visitors went when they left your site. (IP Blocking for the exit links has also been enabled!)

    In addition to the above, we’ve been working on new features and improvements and we’ll be in touch about these as they are released.

    Please continue to keep us posted with your views, thoughts and ideas about the beta – you can post here in the blog or you can register for our forum and post your feedback there.

    Thanks again for all the help so far folks – please keep it up!!

    1. Another update!
      Internet Explorer 8, beta 1 is showing up as Default Browser, the same thing happens with the iPhone/iPod Touch Safaris broswer
      please fix
      along with resolution 1400×900 showing up as unknown

    2. Statcounter is a great product with cool features & it’s good to see you’re continuing to develop more, but I also notice that the beta has very different counts to the old version. Not sure which one to trust but the beta seems to miss a lot of hits the old version counts. Will this be fixed soon?

    3. I’ve got the same issue as Steven with screen resolution of 1440Γ—900 showing unknown resolution in statcounter.

    4. The men (& women!) hard at work at StatCounter said: “the β€œnew” StatCounter numbers should now be recording the same (or more!) hits than the β€œold” system”

      In the last few days before the announcement it was true but since March 1st and at the time I’m writing this, old code recorded 99 hits and SC4 only 49. Wrong timing for that blog update! πŸ˜‰

      Otherwise I’m satisfied with the free product and I think from 100 to 500 logs was a generous move for all free users and I don’t ask for more. You guessed with the numbers above that it’s only a personnal webpage with a small number of visits each day.

    5. Great news…. great service u offer here…
      Maybe you can increase the log size… for free users…it’s a must
      On the other way, there are enough services u offer to free users…but as we all can say… if you offer us a finger…we want all hand πŸ™‚
      keep up the good work
