Been using this for years, It’s a very good plugin. Make sure you read and follow prompts. Very easy to set up and use. Suitable for beginners as well. 🙂 A+++

Fantastic stats plugin

I’ve been using Statcounter for about 10 years and was so excited when the plugin was released. Installation and implementation could not be easier, and I didn’t have to recreated all my projects.

installed it

installed app. Signed up. added proper codes and wont work. This is 3rd plugin today that has wasted my time. Guess I will use google analytics. Thanks for the opportunity, I guess..

Great team behind this plugin

My outlook and views of a brand depend not solely on the quality of the work but, as well, on the quality of the folks behind the product; something that’s not always possible to gauge.

From what I’ve seen, I consider these guys as being reputable. For that, I give them five stars!

Simple to set up and see what's happening

We’ve been using this since before moving to WordPress. It’s simple and easy to set up (especially in WordPress), and provides a better view of what’s happening than any other stats package we’ve evaluated.

Our clients love it (always added to client sites).

Google’s Analytics has it’s place (PPC, A-B testing), but for a general purpose view of visitors and their behaviour, it’s poor.

The other advantage of StatCounter is anyone with the login details can quickly gain access – so different to using Google’s single sign-in … which is a right pain when managing multiple clients.

A genuine 5-star application.

(And StatCounter’s Global Stats are great too)
