New Design LIVE!


Over the last 24 hours we have rolled out the newly redesigned StatCounter for everyone…

Sincere thanks to all our members who helped us beta test the new design over the last 9 months – your feedback, suggestions and comments have been invaluable.

We have tried very hard to maintain the broad structure of “old” StatCounter while incorporating lots of new options and features, along with general interface improvements. This means you should still be able to navigate StatCounter (pretty much) as you always have done, without the need to re-learn the system.

Things to check out….
Organize Projects
Switch between visits and pageloads on the Projects page
Improved Search Engine stats
Hourly Stats
Toggle between projects quickly when viewing your stats
Download a file of individual stats (e.g. keywords) by clicking the excel or CSV icons
Improved Screen Resolution stats
Inclusion of Search Ranking information (where available)
Date Range Selector and Compare Periods option
Improved Browser stats
Filter stats by country (or State or City or ISP)
URL Filter on Popular Pages

If there’s anything you can’t find or something you are puzzled about, leave a comment below OR discuss in the forum OR send us a message. We’ll do our best to reply as soon as we can.

We know, we know! That’s why we have made the new site slowly available and allowed an extended beta period of over 9 months. Change *can* be daunting initially… but please give the new design a chance! It’s full of frequently-requested new features and improvements which, judging by your feedback, most members are really excited about.

“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!”
We’ve heard this comment a few times but we certainly don’t subscribe to it! Should we ditch electricity and go back to candles? Should we abandon cars in favour of a horse and cart? Should we scrap mobile phones and go back to landlines instead? As difficult as it can be, progress involves change! We have worked terribly hard to ensure that StatCounter reamins familiar to you while incorporating the many new changes to minimise any discomfort in switching to our new design.

“Will I always be able to access “old” StatCounter?”
Short answer – no. It’s not practical for us to support two separate systems in the long term. The old version of StatCounter will ultimately be phased out completely. That’s why we strongly recommend that you start using the new version of StatCounter as soon as possible – if there are things you don’t like or have trouble with, then we can look at fixing them up before the final changeover.

“I don’t like it!”
Well – we’re very sorry to hear that! There may be a bug which needs fixing OR we may need to consider an alternative option to suit your tastes. Please consider submitting detailed feedback so we can investigate things for you.

“Don’t you care about what your members think?!”
Of course we do… that’s exactly why we embarked on this redesign! That’s also why the new design of StatCounter is very different to the first iteration we started testing. We listened, we learned, we responded. Unfortunately, no matter how hard we try we just can’t make everyone happy all the time. Instead we have to aim to make the vast majority of people as happy as possible – and judging by the feedback we’re receiving – we’re on our way to meeting that goal.


  1. Would love a way to track my competitors who turn off their javascript.

    1. Well it’s a good thing you’re using StatCounter then! Our tracking is NOT dependent on javascript – hits will be tracked regardless.

  2. I like the new look – cleaner, crisper.. nice. Like many others, I like the google rank against search phrases; great idea & well implemented.

    It might be good to be able to create a report of your favourite stats and then have that as your welcome view – it might save a lot of clicking each time? (apologies if this is in paid version).

  3. New design is really getting popularity and I am sure many of users will be familiar with it soon.

    I am missing one thing that you have a very little quote for the free users. Please do increase it some more so that small website owner can use their data properly.
    As many of these sites are not for income that is why they feel expensive to go on paid member ship with you.

    However Statcounter doing its job very well and rank checking for keywords is the bonus from new design. 🙂

  4. I can’t see the new look,maybe someone can help me to explain more detail. thanks.


  5. I got used to new statcounter design.”Pagerank number in google search query”feature is new and i liked it .

  6. Thanks for the updates. It was important I thought, though I would bit later than expected.

  7. hii.. hell o histats… i have a idea How, if on trafic stats in serch enggine of ‘ pages V ‘ in there are count of page are open. so please to improve link that view by visitor opened pages in one web no just count of pages are opened.

    thanks…. :d

  8. I really love the new design as it makes it looks more attractive and easy to navigate around.
    There are still some few things that I don’t like about statcounter: too small quote before you start charging money for it and that you can see only valuable stats for last month and older keywords and stats are left behind but overall good services, especially the rank checker for incoming keywords

  9. Excelente! Me encanta el nuevo diseño, es bueno saber que se preocupan por el servicio que brindan. Sus estadisticas me han ayudado muchisimo! Sigan asi 🙂 Saludos desde Argentina.-

  10. when viewing recent visitor stats, I miss being able to read the first and last page visited like i used to. is there some setting i have to change. It will show me the referral page url but not the others. It was really handy having it all at one page like that. thanks, max
