StatCounter's mission is to help their members easily understand their visitors, so they can make good decisions to become more successful online.
Have you experienced the 'lets provide a free counter service for a few months then whack them with a charge without any warning', followed closely by the 'free accounts are now worthless we'll just plaster their website with intrusive ads and pop-ups'. This is yet another annoying trend that they've noticed about counter services.
You've spent a long time developing your website, now you want to know who is visiting it. Fair enough. But does that mean you have to subject your visitors to ugly advertising from your counter service? Well they certainly don't believe so - with StatCounter you get what is probably the most configurable free hit counter available in the world, as well as the option to go completely invisible. There are absolutely no ads on your website!
StatCounter is packed full of useful and powerful tools to help you make better decisions about your website.

I use Statcounter for all my sites. In fact, anytime I log online, I always track the most recent search queries driving traffic to my sites from search engines before doing any other thing. Easier and fast for me to track compared to using Google Analytics which I analyse once in a while.

StatCounter Use Cases and Deployment ScopeSting is one client for whom I have used StatCounter. The main reason is Google Analytics has a learning curve and I want my clients to have easy solutions like StatCounter. For most, it provides more than enough data, in good contexts, to quantify and qualify my efforts as a Digital Marketing Strategist.
Pros : Reports are general, which sometimes is all a client wants to know.Data is ordered logically and is easy to flip between screens.It's simple to add to any site.Their communication is excellent. Rarely are there issues but if so, they go right to Twitter and engage immediately.
Cons : I honestly cannot suggest a thing. Again, StatCounter is used for specific reasons and exceeds my expectations.
StatCounter is a helpful tool for anyone who is learning how to monitor their website’s stats. The application is ideal for small business and freelancer websites. The user can keep it inexpensive with a free plan or pay a small fee for more access. The user is given a number of stats and viewing options that help them see where their users are coming from and what they do when they visit.
