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. Having seen the Beta version of StatCounter it is absolutely great.

    I give it 99 out of 100.

  2. Have enjoyed things just the way they are. I really love statcounter. I have it counting stats for about 20 websites. I’m on this site all day long. Sure will miss its current format.

  3. If it’s a simple matter of a few header buttons rather than text links for the my projects, my profile etc area, I see no harm in it.

    I see why lots of people commenting are saying don’t change, as it’s a daily business tool, and users do not want that compromised. As long as the functionality is still there, it works as fast and in the same way, then what’s the problem. I’m sure you guys will see it as helping your overall brand image, try and appeal to some different users.

    Just don’t change what has kept your bread and butter customers coming back.

  4. I love Statcounter – whatever you do to improve it will be appreciated!

  5. What is it that you feel needs changing?
    If it is just a case of tarting up the user interface, forget it.
    StatCounter is a tool. (A very useful tool!)
    By all accounts most folk appreciate it for what it is.
    We ( I ) don’t need to be impressed by gimmicky presentation.
    Just give me the facts, man.
    I agree with the ‘If it aint broke, don’t fix it.’ brigade.
    Stick with the KISS principle.

  6. Hey people just gotto know this tremendous website and i must tell yah is really cool
    i used this stats for one of me clients (am a web developer) and the results are impresive
    You guys are just the Bomb Keeo it up ya all

  7. Changes look good, but will all the features stay exactly the same and be as easy to use? I hope so, because I’ve been using statcounter for years and would not be happy if there was a radical change.

  8. I didn’t know that but I would like both to be displayed – the user always wants more!

  9. I love the free service but I wish there were an upgrade between the 1,500 and the 10,000, say 5,000, for $15 a month. For small site owners like myself that would be ideal.

    Thank you for considering this.

    The blog is not the place for support queries. If you are having trouble, contact the Support Desk here.

  11. Looking forward to seeing your upcoming changes to your new site, I know it will definitely bring more nice things because there is no match to statcounter till today.

  12. i was the big fan of ga. but recently i have seen this statcounter visitor tracking site. I felt its very easy to use compared to ga. and you guys are working more on this. I appreciate it. I liked the new design.

  13. More than a year ago, I requested that Statcounter use protocols used in the “Chicago Manual of Style.” The Gold standard for USAGE is Fowler’s Modern Usage”–a publication from Oxford University.

    The response was “Why Chicago?” Whomever responded that they would not incorporate the CMS requirement that ordinal numbers are spoken as such (spoken as December tenth, for example) but written as cardinal (December 10, not December 10th–Statcounter current usage).

    The CMS is the gold standard for English WRITING. That I hail from Chicago is a moot issue.

    If you want the paragraph number, I could provide it.

    Better yet, I strongly suggest buying both of these publications. You can get cutrate copies from the meta-search site of root-URL snippet, addall.

    The only other suggestion is that you pump Six Sigma principles into your web design.

    Otherwise, you guys do a bang-up job.

    Thanks for everything!

  14. I think that the new design represents your excellent capabilities. I really like the UI, good work and thanks for this free service again.

  15. Thanks for all you do…looking forward to an easy-on-the-eyes and more intuitive template.


  16. Here’s an idea that would help us. Can you add a feature where we can analyze traffic by time of day? We’d like to chart when we receive the most traffic from, for example the Middle East. This would also help us with trending and forecasting.
