Misleading
By , for WP 4.1.1

The plugin doesn't really do anything besides creating a "Counter Statistics" option below 'Comments' on your dashboard. There you have to sign up an account on their website (it links you to their page in another tab). Then you are given a few options and it gives you a programing code and instructs you to put this into the wordpress code on your site. So the plugin doesn't actually do anything except link you to their "free counter" site.

So its not really a counter plugin at all. What a misleading shame.

Does not record unique hits
By , for WP 4.1

Tested and re-tested - the plugin counted / recorded my ip address 4 times within 5 minutes.

Needs Work
By , for WP 3.9.1

After nearly 24 hours on one of my websites it said I had 5 visits from 3 users.
I knew this was impossibly low for the site so I installed another counter and it showed 7 unique users in 15 minutes. Something was causing this counter to not register most of the hits to the site.
Sorry, but I'm going with another counter.

Pretty sad you have that much time!

It is very pathetic that you have so much time on your hands that anytime you see a plugin ahead of yours in the plugins directory you basically bump your plugin without making any real changes just to bump yours up to the top of the list. I consider this spammy behavior so you get one star and be glad I can't give you zero. Please find other things to do with your time other than monitoring the plugin directory because I checked your development log many times and I finally had to say enough is enough.
