SC4 and Beyond…!


In the last few days we have completed conversion of all StatCounter projects to our new SC4 platform.

Some of the key differences with this update include:

  • Exit Link Stats
  • Download Stats
  • Faster Loading Keyword and Country Stats
  • Improved reliability and redundancy
  • Improved loading speed of StatCounter code
  • Greater technical flexibility to allow for continued system improvements

We want to take this opportunity to thank you for your patience and support during the period of the conversion – it took much longer than we had wanted or expected so we are absolutely delighted that all members now have access to the improved features.

As mentioned above, our new system provides us with lots of flexibility to continue to improve the service we offer… so we are combing through our forum and support system and putting together an action plan of updates and improvements for StatCounter. In addition, we’d be very grateful for your help…

    • Is there a statistic or feature that you would like to see on StatCounter?
    • If there was one thing you could change about StatCounter what would it be?
    • Is there any way that we could make StatCounter easier to use?
    • How could StatCounter be even more useful to you?

If you have a bright idea, then please post it here!

Any and all suggestions will be of great help to us in charting our way forward as we continue to strive to provide you, our members, with the best service we possibly can.


  1. I also use the Blocking cookie to prevent my own visits from my blog. I do not know anything about IP blocking yet until you have mentioned it here. Anyway, the cookie is still the best method to use since it doesn’t involve some technical complexity.

  2. I feel cookie blocking works sometime better than IP blocking. Yesterday, I blocked my work IP, but it showed visits from me. However, today it is fine.

    I love this site 🙂

    Thank you

  3. Kudos and thanks again for everything!!
    I’ve been using Statcounter for 3+ years now – don’t know what I’d do without it

  4. I am thankful for your services because all my sites are easy to set up and I can trace my website hits easily…

  5. What would be nice: when you look at recent visitor activity, use some icons for browser and OS instead of the pure text description. ofc, the icon would be the same for all versions of a specific browser, so the text could be a tooltip/alt-tag and still give the more complete info.

    Even cooler, but a *lot* more work it would be if one could customize the fields appearing in reports.

    And my last suggestion: beautified urls. so for example, instead of
    something like

    Would kinda help to type those URLs directly on mobile devices without needing bookmarks etc.

    However, all in all thumbs up for a great service!

  6. I had an account at but they have closed their services. Now I am thankful for your services because all my sites are easy to set up and I can trace my website hits easily.

  7. My IP address is banned from the forum so unable to post messages. I hope Statcounter staff read these comments for I am hoping to offer a suggestion to improve the stats.

    One important stats I often refer to is the screen resolution. There are hundreds of different screen resolutions but what I am mainly interested is in the width, not so much the height. This is because I want to use a fixed template optimized so that the vast majority of my visitors will not have to use a horizontal scroll bar to view hidden content. I now have left behind 800×600 and use template for 1024×768 because Statcounter reports 800×600 visitors are less than 2%. However, I am worried that many of those listed in the UNKNOWN may belong to those with width less than 1024px and if so, I may want to revert template back to 800px width

    I have also noticed from Statcounter stats that almost 40% of screen resolution are listed as UNKNOWN. I hope Statcounter if possible can report the percentage based only on width and not on height. PLEASE.
