Redesigned with you in mind, a clearer and easier to use Statcounter.

It’s our mission to make Statcounter the most useful, engaging and easy to use analytics app for our members. This update is just one of many improvements we have lined up to help make it easy for you to understand your visitors and make the most informed decisions about your website.

 

Clarity and ease-of-use.

While there are some new features and functional improvements in this update, the most substantial changes are to the look and feel of the Statcounter user interface. Redesigned from the ground up, we’ve placed priority on clarity and ease-of-use by improving the layout, typography, colours, icons, spacing and visual hierarchy.

 

See the wood for the trees.

New headline stats show you important summary information at a glance.

Compare and contrast.

A refreshed projects page makes it easier for you to compare trends across your projects.

Take a shortcut.

A redesigned date-range picker with shortcut buttons makes filtering reports by date quicker and easier.

Jump and zoom.

New jump and zoom controls on the summary chart make it easier than ever to navigate backwards and forwards in time and zoom in and out for different levels of granularity.

Be flexible.

You can now hide the left navigation menu when you need some extra space for your stats. This can be particularly useful for viewing reports that contain long URLs.

Be Vibrant.

Last but by no means least, we’re excited to show you our new logo. A vibrant new look to the future, with a nod to the past.

Watch this space for further improvements in the coming months and if you have any feedback, please feel free to let us know in the comments below or use the Feedback Tab in Statcounter.

  1. Dislike intensely. Clearly designed with a limited attention span in mind, as with so many sites/apps these days. May be better than nothing but I am not convinced. Sorry.

  2. I would like some help to get back my Statcounter account. I messed around with passwords and it got deleted somehow. Is there someone to guide me with a new install? Hope so!

  3. Revised layout looks good but I doubt that it is relevant to my site which is a free information site primarily aimed at students. Visits to the site have dropped off over recent months and I am pondering whether to close it.

  4. Very good overall.

    A very minor issue: when the “label this visitor” popup is opened, the label textbox should have the keyboard focus.

  5. Looks promising, but I have some concerns… probably a stupid question though 😛
    if I update my Statcounter, will I keep the data I’ve gathered so far or do I have to do something specific not to loose anything?
    Thanks

  6. The 2 biggest problems I have with Statcounter are (1) the “most popular” numbers and the Entry page numbers and the summary numbers seem totally inconsistent with each other most of the time. (2), the numbers from Google and the numbers from Statcounter while often similar are sometimes hugely different. I do not understand what you are counting (and not counting) in the different categories.

  7. I used to enjoy seeing who had visited our webblogs but you removed the feature to a premium account 🙁

    1. Hi Enrique,

      We definitely haven’t changed any free features to be paid features. Please get in touch and we’ll help you find what you’re looking for.

      1. Hi Jonathan,
        Now you are making me doubt…years ago when I started using Statcounter (certainly more than 10 years) I remember more information was available on free accounts which was removed. I believe the information I am referring to is available on premium accounts. Sorry I can’t be more explicit. And thanks for your reply!
