New Customizable Summary Stats [13th July 2005]
StatCounter is pleased to announce the arrival of new and improved Summary Stats aimed at delivering a high level of customization and control to allow you to view your Summary Stats exactly as you want them. These stats now incorporate a number of new features:
Level of Detail: View your summary stats by day, week, month, quarter or year! This feature allows you to examine and make comparisons with your sites' traffic at many different levels, extracting information on short-term and long-term trends.
Period or Date Range: Select from a preset number of periods, which vary depending on your level of detail, or enter in a specific range of dates – the choice is yours to give you a fine level of control over the timespan you wish to view.
Data: Choose to view (or not view) page loads, unique visitors or returning visitors.
Graph Type: We now let you choose which type of graph you want to illustrate your data – bar graph, area graph, or no graph for lower bandwidth users.
Custom Settings: To take control of this wide range of options, you can “save” your favourite settings – just tick the “Save as Default” box before submitting, and now every time you log in, your favourite summary stat settings will automatically load. The default settings show a Daily level of detail, set the period to the Last 7 Days, and show page loads, unique visitors and returning visitors with a bar graph – but you can change this to suit your tastes!
We hope you enjoy these new Summary Stats – let us know what you think in this forum topic.
In other news, we have just upgraded our load balancing system for viewing stats and you should now experience better responsiveness and performance from the site. As always, your counters load as instantly as ever, but you now should also see better performance while checking your stats.
We are continuing our work on the Advanced StatCounter Project and we'll have a beta version out for testing purposes for all upgraded members in August 2005. Stay tuned for this exciting update.
Finally, we'd like to welcome Peter to the team, who'll be working on future site development!
That's all for now. Many thanks for your continued support!
