Remove render-blocking JavaScript
By ,

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

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.

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

Can't align the Counter
By , for WP 3.9.1

This plugin does not give any possibility to align the Counter on the page.
