Overall Satisfaction with StatCounter

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.
  • Easy analytics
  • Real-time stats
  • "From where" it came keywords
  • The design overall looks a bit outdated even though they recently changed it.
  • The script that needs to be placed to track can be improved.
  • I can tell exactly where my websites are losing traffic.
  • I can tell where I need to improve my content.
  • I can figure out in real time the traffic and the nature of my visitors.
Statcounter excels with the simplicity and efficiency of the analytics. You can see exactly what's going on on your sites without the need to dig into complex google analytics data.
Statcounter is definitely a tool you need to have combined with GA. You should not use it if you think that you can get enough from Google Analytics but honestly I think that also adding StatCounter to your site will make you happy.
