A Facelift for StatCounter!

Hi all,

StatCounter Facelift!
We’re currently updating StatCounter – the new site will have a fresh, modern look; it will be more user-friendly and hopefully will make using StatCounter an even better experience. Our new interface will also give us flexibility to continue to improve the service we offer.

Help Please!
Internal testing of the new site has been ongoing for some time… but NOW we need YOUR HELP!

We’d love to get feedback from a really broad range of people from beginners, all the way up to advanced users.

It would also be great to hear from anyone with a blog or website, who is NOT yet using StatCounter but would like to join up.

So, if you would like to have an input into the new StatCounter design then please apply for beta access here!

Please note that while we are hoping to get as much feedback as possible, we may not be able to offer access to everyone who applies. We do, however, sincerely appreciate every single offer of assistance – StatCounter couldn’t be what it is today without the support and loyalty of you, our members.

We would also be delighted to welcome any volunteers to our Dublin office to test the new site in person. If you’re in or around Dublin over the next few weeks and you have some time to spare, then we’d love to hear from you!

Questions, comments and suggestions welcome below.

  1. I’m so happy to read the comment from ‘Car guy’ – I’ve been looking for a counter for my website on selling photography online and have been wading through some awful software! Very glad to hear this will be easy to use.

  2. I have been privileged as a Moderator for Statcounter to give my input, AND concerns about the new design. I must say that it is not simply a face lift, nor is it bloated and slow! It has grace and speed. It looks slick and is still easy to navigate. Newbies will love the intuitive layout and helpful features, but old timers will not get frustrated with unneeded “helpful” prompts on “how to do” every step. Without giving away too much, I see many improvements that will make life much easier for all Statcounter users and as I have access to the new design, I’ve not even considered going back to the old design. Statcounter will not mess with something just to make it look good, function must follow form. The stats account may change but the high standards to service and quality will remain.

  3. I want to reiterate the earlier comments re Sitemeter, I too was there for 3 years, and then moved to your service, because it got bought by folks that definitely did NOT have your attitude about customer service, and your ability to be placed on a secure checkout part of our site . . . Having said that, the only usability complaint I could have abut Statcounter is not having a choice of “start” page . . not the end of the world, but it sure would be nice . . . and thanks for trying to keep improving . .I am dead sure we’ll tell you if any of the new features don’t measure up to what we are used to now :()

  4. hi folks,
    I am using STATCOUNTER on my website in Germany an I am definitely very pleased with it as it is now.
    As long as you don´t sacrifice the loading speed a new design could be useful.
    thank you and right on gooood job

  5. This may be off base, but how about changing the theme every now and then? Maybe not if it won’t look right, but I just get tired of seeing the same thing all the time. My own computer has about 1000 wallpapers that randomly rotate every 15 minutes, lol. Adult ADD I guess. Good post though, thanks.

  6. So far the Stat Counter loads fast, which is a plus!! It is easy to use and understand. Does it have a feature to track how many visitors “add to favorites” the site once they’ve visit?

  7. Why do you fix something when it’s not broken??
    Your site is very functional, user friendly, simple to use. Effective. I sense there will be a lot of fancy javascripts that will make things slower, and I can bet many features will be hidden or hard to find.

    1. Hi Nesha,

      We’re not trying to “fix” StatCounter… we plan to improve it!

      We’ve no intention of using fancy scripts which slow down the site and we certainly won’t be making things hard to find… why on earth would we do that?!

      1. I Agree with Neesha. But I also have to say that users now a days go for the looks too. So definitely a brand new look for statcounter would do good for it. But the load time has to be checked, so that it does not hamper the user experience.
