Basic weekly and / or monthly reporting can be emailed to your account. You can in some cases have reports automatically sent to others. The emailed information tends to be basic however in 98% of cases this is all that my customers tend to want.
The emailed information consists of how many visitors you have received, how many pages they have read and how many are unique! This can be first time viewers or people that may have returned after a long period of time.
You can have numerous recipients to the emailed basic report and you can, along with others, have access to your reporting control panel. Access is given at various levels from full Admin to just viewing. Each person can have their own login account with the administrator controlling who can access and use the information it builds up.
Within the StatCounter control Panel you have access to the most recent page visits and you can follow a viewer’s path as they view your website. Time stamps, where they come from what type of device and search engines they have used can all been viewed. You may think this is 'big daddy' however it doesn’t tell you who the visitors are.
Graphs and Charts
You may wish to download a report and the StatCounter not only provides this in MS Excel, CSV or PDF reporting but you can also set the date and time parameters. For fast easy reports these can be viewed within the StatCounter control Panel; there is no need to download the files unless of course you want to.
Graphics are designed to suit you; anything from Bar Charts, Pie Graphics or Line Chats all at a click of a button.
There is no limit to summary logs however free versions of StatCounter only allow the last 500 pages visitors to be viewed in depth. Most customers find this suits their requirements however you can always upgrade to see more.
