  1. You guys are doing a great job. When I start making some money I will be upgrading. Thanks

  2. I just started using StatCounter. And it is without a doubt the best service of its kind.

  3. It would be great if you could also separate the stats to a granularity of “Category” which would give some understanding on how different kind of target groups relate to the global data.

  4. This is extremely useful. I’ve so far tried to use some statistics from one of the bigger sites we’re managing to measure trends, but the target group is never as global as you would like, but with this tool you can be certain of the wide variety of visitors. Great work!

  5. I use their services since one year now and all I can say is Wow!
    They realy do a great job an the icing on the cake for free.

    Thanks for all!

  6. Thanks Statcounter – an important tool for some one like me starting out with new web site. And you are SO easy to set up and use – especially for a Newby like myself. Bear Hugs to Statcounter!!!!

  7. I like the business model of offering a free service with optional paid upgrade. It evidently works.

  8. Another great tool from Statcounter – enables us to offer even greater value to our customers! Thanks!

  9. I love to see the map and data showing where my visitors come from. It’s helpful for directing my marketing.

  10. StatCounter is the perfect example of a product which answers a need – which leads to stupendous viral growth. All that traffic and value without any (that I’ve noticed) spend on advertising. I wish more businesses would adopt this model.

  11. Another amazing tool offered to the public for free. It’s new features like this one that caused me to become a paying member of your service. Please keep up the good work.
