Jumping through hoops is not good, uninstalled
By , for WP 4.1.1

This seems like quite a useful plugin until you realize you have to jump through many hoops to get it working.

Thanks but no thanks, there are better alternatives.

Hi, install your plugin in my site, set project_id and security_code, looked home page(not shows counter).

The best?
By , for WP 4.1.1

This is the best visitor counter and statistics that I ever used!
Easy to install, working well, multiple functions to get data from (that I never thought I would use but I did!) and in a very nice way to display them. I love the plug-in!

Remove render-blocking JavaScript

Google's speed test tools tells me to "Remove render-blocking JavaScript" and then shows the link to the StatCounter JS file.

Easier than Google Analytics
By , for WP 4.1

So much easier than Google Analytics that it's funny why Google still remains so complicated for easy tasks.

Not using the Displayed Counter - I mean, really? Who uses those anymore?

Withing the dashboard you can log into StatCounter and see all the results you need.

Excellent and easy to use
By ,

Excellent, easy to use plugin to add stat counter tracking from within the WordPress dashboard, love it!

It would be great if you could also view stats from within the WordPress dashboard, although I accept that that's a non-trivial implementation!

Great job!

Many thanks, excellent stats!

One thing missing IMO at dashboard - at least I didn't find it: exclude current IP address from stats.

Better than Analytics

Plugin is better than analytics.

Detailed but Simple
By , for WP 4.0

A very comprehensive and useful alternative to Google Analytics
Hard to beat where I need quick and reliable analytics of the major metrics.
Especially useful to give quick on the fly reports to my clients.
If anyone remembers the old StatCounter hit button - this is not it, this is a world away, really useful. I use the free version which is very full featured and only lacks extensive history.
Stats and graphs right in the WP Admin area, easy to set up, and at the statcounter site you can see all your sites with all the data.

Perfect
By , for WP 3.9.1

I have used statcounter for many years and it works perfect. Easy to install and to use.
