StatCounter launches new features and website

29 Sep 2011

Website traffic analysis site StatCounter has launched intuitive new features, including date range comparison, allowing members to compare and contrast stats for different periods. If you manage a number of websites, it’s also now possible to organise your websites into user-defined groups.

“Our goal remains to offer the most user friendly website traffic analysis to all our members, ranging from companies, organisations and webmasters to bloggers and individuals,” said founder and CEO Aodhan Cullen.

“The changes have been made in response to feedback and suggestions received.”

He said the company was keen to retain the look and feel of the original site and operated in public beta mode for more than nine months to allow members plenty of time to evaluate and comment on the changes. “The feedback has been great and we really appreciate all the help and ideas we have received from our members.”

Amongst the new features, StatCounter has made it even more intuitive for new members to sign up and check that they are properly installed.

The new site now also includes hourly stats, allowing members to watch hour-by-hour traffic trends.
