Try the NEW StatCounter site NOW!

Folks,

Apologies for the hiatus in communication. Over the last few weeks the whole team has been engrossed in the new design for StatCounter…

While private beta testing has been ongoing for some time now, we’re delighted to announce the public launch of the beta site today.

(NOTE: By “beta site” we mean a “preview” of the new StatCounter site. The “look and feel” of the site are close to how we expect the final version to be, however, regular design changes and bug fixes can be expected as we hear feedback from you, our members.)

New Look and Improved Features

As well as a fresh new look, the beta site boasts many improvements and new features including:

  • Date Range Selector for all stats – identify, for example, which Search Engines were used to find your site yesterday. Or last week. Or compare last week and this week. Etc.
  • Simplified Code Generation Process – get your code more quickly. Reinstallation is much easier too.
  • Quicker Sign Up for New Members – fewer clicks, more intuitive process – now you can feel even better about recommending us to your friends and colleages 😉
  • Hourly Stats – based on the log file – watch the hour-by-hour traffic trends on your site.
  • Project Dropdown List – simply toggle between your projects when viewing your stats.
  • Improved Browser Stats – now it’s even easier to monitor the most popular browser families and browser versions used to view your site.

Thank you!
We’d like to offer our sincere thanks to all our private beta testers. While we haven’t been able to respond to every communication, all feedback has been read and taken on board. Your comments, suggestions and ideas have been invaluable. Sincere thanks to each and every one of you for your time.

To any of our members who may be CONCERNED:
We are all well aware of the many botched redesigns that have taken place on various websites over the years… please be assured that we have NO intention of suffering the same fate! The site redesign was undertaken simply and solely to improve StatCounter for you, our members, in response to the many requests and comments you submitted. We hope we have managed to achieve a fresh but familiar look. You will also note that we are *not* imposing this redesign on you! Instead, the new design continues as an optional beta allowing us to iron our any remaining bugs or problems before the new site eventually goes live.

PLEASE use this beta testing period to become familiar with the new StatCounter design. Please also submit your feedback (good and bad!) to allow us to fine-tune the new site according to your preferences.

We’re really excited about the new design and we hope you will be too! As always, your comments are welcome below.

IMPORTANT UPDATE
Folks,

The beta version of StatCounter is COMPLETELY optional at the moment. We are *not* imposing this new design on you – instead we have presented you with a new version of the site which we are changing and tweaking according to your feedback!

Some members are asking how to “switch” between versions – please note the relevant URLS:

  1. I rather like it. I’m possibly the least technically minded blogger in the world but I can understand it and find the information I require.

    Many thanks for the facelift. It’s cheered me up as we’re told to expect more snow here in Scotland tomorrow.

  2. Wow! I like the new look and the newly incorporated features. I just tested them. Since I do purely SEO, I think your new features will make it easier for me to track visitors and to better improve the performance of sites. Thanks for this. I don’t know about other users but I personally appreciate your efforts.

    Thank youoo

  3. Looks very snazzy, and yet even easier to read than the old version, thanks to the bigger font.

    My favorite part? Quick project switch from the drop-down menu, that’s a really handy feature.

    One downside – really long URLs (e.g. Google translate ones) in “Recent Came From” makes it hard to read, I think you could just cut off the URL after certain number of characters, just like in the old version.

    1. Nevermind – I just found out you can simply uncheck “Wrap Long URLs” and they will cut off just like in the old version and save space 🙂

  4. The only thing I do not care for is the Summary list of options along the left. I have to scroll down to click on the Recent Visitor Activity link. With the current version, that is not the case.

    I’m glad to hear other features have been addressed, such as the code generation process. But I prefer the current look/layout as opposed to the new one.
