NEW: Restricted Public Stats

With StatCounter you have always had the option to make your StatCounter stats public. This feature allows you to provide visitors to your site with a link to view all your StatCounter stats.

Further to many requests we have now implemented Restricted Public Stats. This option allows you to provide visitors to your site with a link to view only the “Summary Stats” page of your StatCounter stats.

summary

To enable/disable public stats:

  • Log in to your StatCounter account.
  • Click the ‘lock’ icon beside your project name.

  1. I think that is a very powerful addition to the already great statcounter feature list, however, I think most people don’t use public stats at all. Maybe a little bit of promotion on why publicizing your stats could be a good thing (especially for advertising driven sites that need to sell people on how many visitors actually come).

  2. Great stuff, goes to show that you are responding to customer needs, well done (again!) statcounter! πŸ™‚

  3. That’s neat. I’ve only used invisible counters so far, but I have shown off my visitors on a few sites in the past. Restricted public stats is one more argument for doing it, since the information revealed this way is at the minimum.

  5. The histograms look good, but the accompanying text leaves the impression that knowing your visitors’s IP addresses, you obviously could find out some details about them – which is indeed the case, wrt their PCs.

    Unfortunately, this would not bode well for me and my sports websites, as the main visitors are those who play in our local league and who would quote the UK’s Data Protection Act to me.

    However, I have produce my own statistical output (on my website), by producing an Excel Table, from monthly visitors.
