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. ๐Ÿ™‚


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!!


    The men (& women!) hard at work at StatCounter ๐Ÿ˜‰

    PS: You can still sign up for the beta project here!

    PPS: Good luck to any women proposing today, given the day that’s in it!

    1. Excellent job. I’m especially interested in tracking clickouts – I’ve been wanting for a while to know where visitors go out of my blog.

    2. “Exit Links” are still being listed for my blocked IP. The magnifying glass is not shown next to those entries in the “Exit Links Activity” view.

      But they are counted in the total hits in the “Exit Links” view.

    3. Old statcounter says “Your log size of 500 has 500 entries.”

      New SC4 says “Your log size of 500 has 499 entries.”

      That’s a minor aesthetic flaw but it should be fixed.

    4. First of all, statcounters is the better stuff! But… there are many occasions that the counter (hidden) image is destroying the layout while not being complete able to load of very (to) slow… ๐Ÿ™
