  1. I’m always using statcounter not only because it’s comprehensive but also because it’s faster than its competitors. I hope it’s and will stay as the top statistics provider for websites.

  2. Wasn’t aware of the Beta design until I just came to have a look around the blog! It’s looking great though – glad I popped in here! Will get back with feedback after a good trial of it 🙂 thx.

  3. One feature I wish we had yet – often when the link from google is displayed, if we click on it it goes to my own website instead of to the google page showing the search. Because the link to google automatically redirects, it would be hard to prevent that possibly, but because statcounter does accurately evaluate the keywords perhaps a button could be added to do the search without invoking the redirect. Here is the search – – which takes me to my own homepage. But statcounter is correctly identifying the keywords as website designers kalamazoo the the search engine as google. Can I run that search on google without going to my homepage?

  4. This is a great jump to your site.
    It looks exellent, Im using now the beta only.
    5 stars.

    Just a idea???
    Did you think to add the facebook as a browser???

    Any way its a very good site.

    Thanks for your support.

  5. nice design and outlook…go to try it out to know if it suit me. But all the same, great job. keep it up.

  6. This would perhaps be on topic, the email reports are also frustratingly limited, and actually encouraging users to have smaller log size. Why? because I can’t see any option to have my daily report be based on daily data! Other than page loads or uniques all the other data is apparently for the whole log. In other words I might be interested in a daily report actually based on 24 hrs of data, and I want want more than that saved in the log for other things…It seems like SC has the ability to work with the time periods really well, hope you can address this.

  7. I actually tried the beta. The date selector drop downs take a little getting used to but are functional. I’m stunned I can’t figure out how to view all at once or download the data after a filter… Maybe I’m just not seeing it?

  8. Please add a “show # per page” dropdown, or some other way to use the cool new date range usability to create a searchable *data set*. An html page is not a bad format sometimes. My favorite way to search for some tasks is Ctrl-F in a browser.

    Sorry if it’s there and I didn’t see it.


  9. So, cool!.

    Thanks for the new features. The search engine stats is very required for proper optimization.

  10. Me and my organisation have been with from the beginning and use it for our clients too.

    Thoroughly free, thoroughly reliable, simple and great – cannot recommend it enough, and now it’s just got better.

    Well done!

  11. Impressive – really like the new features – much easier to navigate and install tracker codes

    Thanks Statcounter Team

    switching projects is much easier for a start.
