Company Name: Statcounter
Overall: I have used Statcounter on everything from a 20K visit a day site, to small niche sites with a few hits a week. It worked great both with high volume and lower volume. I sometimes use it along with Google Analytics, mostly because it is much easier to read. I also prefer Statcounter when I have a group of sites in the same niche, iI think comparison is easier this way, than using Google Analytics.
Pros: The statistics are clear and easy to read. You can see where your visitors are from, what they are doing and get a good overview of your web traffic. It is tonnes easier to read than Google Analytics. Setup on WordPress is super simple, install their plugin and enter the ID codes and it will start tracking immediately. I like that you cannot identify other sites by the same owner using Statcounter. when you use Google Analytics, you have a huge footprint all over your sites. Organization is easy with groups of sites. So even if you have a large portfolio, you can keep them organized well. They have a very generous free level. You can actually use the free tier for a smaller site quite successfully.
Cons: It does not have all the bells and whistles of Google Analytics, but on the other hand, this is much easier to read.
Overall: My overall experience with StatCounter has been excellent, the product has experience little (if any) downtime and always gives me reliable statistics
Pros: StatCounter was very easy to use and insert into my website, the prepared html code snippet went into a global footer and tracked a variety of metrics for my site. It was pretty interesting to view the data on site visitors. Really helped me control content for my site users.
Cons: The only thing that was complicated about the software was manually inserting the code snippet, but really that was easy enough. There were really easy instructions to follow.
I am using it as an alternative to Google Analytics to see my overall website performance on a daily basis.
I love the fact that you can check your stats minute by minute. They are updated and shown online in real-time and have detailed analysis that will give you specific insight on how your blog readers and visitors find you, how long they stay on your page, the most popular pages, what links they exit on and so much more.
After a period of time of using the site, some of the features about specific stats are not shown to you unless you purchase a monthly plan. Other than that, Stat Counter is wonderful.
To monitor internal website traffic
Statcounter is incredible tool which rivals Google Anayltics for use in tracking and monitoring website traffic – their exit link tracking in my opinion far surpasses the Analytics data which Google provides website owners
It is great I would just say for conversion tracking Google has many customizations I am not sure if Statcounter does or does not have them, but it is easier to implement in google because its more widely use
I am using StatCounter in all of my 65 websites. The reason why I use it is that it gives easier to read insights and analytics of my sites compared to Google Analytics. You might be able to grasp more data with Google Analytics but you can not do it while driving or doing other stuff. You always need a computer to dig into stats with Google Analytics, meanwhile, with StatCounter, it’s all more straight forward and even mobile friendly since they have a nice app! The visitor’s path tab is very nice and it allows you to see real-time visitors and a lot of precious information you need to grow your websites.
