  1. Thanks for providing this stats service – a great service especially on the mobile browser segmentation. There’s an interesting thread going on over at on the momolondon yahoo group @ – you’ll have to sign up to see the thread, but if you’re into mobile then it’s a very active group and well worth joining. It is essentially discussing mobile access stats between StatCounter / AdMob and Bango. iPhone / iTouch play very high on StatCounter and pretty high on AdMob, but is way down on the list for Bango. This is due to iPhone devices accessing PC sites (a.k.a non-mobile-ready sites) as well as mobile-ready sites, but it shows a great trend on how the iPhone has impacted the way that people accessing the web from their mobile.

  2. Statcounter is the first thing I set up on on any new roofing contractor sites. I love knowing what is going on instantly. These new global stats are only updated 5 times a day, but in the world of global stats that is very “instant”.

  3. Statcounter is the best bargain on the Internet today. You can’t beat “Free”, can you? Surprisingly, its also a lot more useful that most tools that I’ve paid for. It provides just about everything that I need to track the progress of my advertising campaigns.
