  1. Great man! cool upcoming new features, personally i liked second, sixth and seventh features very useful! cheers~~

  2. I am new at this and don’t know if this can be done.. I have two projects. Can I look at the came from on only one day, one project, one day?

    I have new ads in different places and I want to know if they are working.

  3. The new statcounter looks good…but I have a question: Why are the stats SO much lower than what my actual site shows? I’m still keeping statcounter mainly for the purpose of getting more details as to where my visitors are from but the difference in numbers is…amazingly lower than the real thing.
    Is there any reason for that or is there any way to correct this?

    Thank you!

  4. Wow… tampilan StatCounter yang baru nampak segar sekali dan saya tidak tahan untuk bisa melihat hasil akhir.
    StatCounter is the best web statistics resource!

  5. Statcounter was the best site for statistics and with the new improvements it will definitely stay on this highest of levels – well done, keep up the good work!

  6. Have just visited the beta site for the first time and I like what I see.
    I am using a fast broadband connection, Windows XP, IE7.
    The sites pages take longer to load than the old site but maybe that’s because there is more information. Might be a problem for dial up users though. They will find it annoying.
    On the “Recent Visitor Activity” page I had a problem. When the cursor hovers over the “Referring URL:” link, some of the green text is unreadable. This is because the background of the link is transparent and the underlying text is still visible. Try it.

    Problems aside I like the improvements and will be using it in the future.
    Well done to the statcounter team.

  7. Beautiful…simply beautiful…this new interface is poetry in motion. Congrats on all the hard work.

  8. Hi,

    I feel your new features are really good and would like to try the free trail version.

  9. Hi,

    This is a very great project. I am appreciated all the detail reports done by you all. Furthermore with new appearance – clean and simple page, more friendly user.

    The best part is you have a feedback column so that your user may arise their opinion and suggestion.

    Keep it Up!! šŸ™‚

  10. The Beta version looks like cool and useful features are coming. i love the data sector ad its very useful for us.
    Thanks team, Keep on going.

  11. Just figured it out. Those references to go daddy seem to appear in the Dreamweaver tracker code. Iā€™m uncertain why. I was actually looking to see if there was a specific php code and strayed into the non-standard area.
