StatCounter Says NO to spam advertisers!

A few months back, StatCounter was approached by an advertiser, offered lots of $$$, and asked to include a spyware cookie on all of our member sites…we refused on the spot.
You install StatCounter to track visitors to your site NOT to open yourself and your visitors up to being spied upon by phantom advertising corporations.

It appears, however, that other players in the world of webstats were happy to take up this offer… We were shocked to discover just today that another well known stats provider is allowing up to 9 cookies to be installed in the browser of every visitor that hits one of their member websites. This means that the provider is making money by transmitting data on you and your visitors to a third party advertiser. Not only that, but to add insult to injury, the cookies are causing the member websites to load very slowly too.

In light of this, StatCounter wants to assure you that we track your visitors for you, only you and not any one else.

Which provider would you prefer??

One thought on “StatCounter Says NO to spam advertisers!

  1. Yup, StatCounter gives FREE lifetime Invisible Web Tracker, web analysis, keyword analysis, visitors, visit lenght, log-size et al, vis-a-vis, web counter service, among other freebies and features! and allows to determine the info one needs. StatCounter Ltd. is an Ireland based Company with 150,000 members worldwide and growing! Ireland is known/ a leader in for its IT/ Software product development, support and services. I think last year the Prime Minister of Ireland was here in India with a panel of businessmen from Ireland. Great partnership! I have wondered why StatCounter gives away FREE download, but well its an advertising world and ones got to shine of the cluster of ads and the linked revenue generation! It would be great to know the # of people visiting your site, distributed date wise etc. Glad they are not getting lured by the advert $$$!!!Rgds, Pankaj (Peter) Varma 91 9810000163 Gurgaon New Delhi India
