Moved to statcounter! Sitemeter slows down my blog

by Ruchira on November 23, 2010

Hmm. I have used sitemeter alongside google analytics to track down my visitors for more than a year and recently I felt that sitemeter slows down my page loads because of their java code which i placed on my footer took more times than before to load. Slowing down page loads is not good because these days speed of web sites plays major part in SEO also its annoying to wait until footer gets loaded. So I decided to give a shot to statcounter and leave sitemeter.

I have used sitemeter because it has some great functions like real time visitor counter to see who is online at the given moment and stuff. And the interface is pretty clean and I have used to run sitemeter open, means anyone can view my visitors by clicking the icon on footer. And overall sitemeter provided great interface without ads and its very easy to manage.

Statcounter is most famous one and its little bit different than sitemeter. Actually its little bit hard to be get used to statcounter interface and there are ads on looks misleading users. On the picture below it shows on red circle.

Actually ads on there are little bit misleading because it looks like those are sections on control panel. I agree i cant complain about anything because its free. But actually speedwise statcounter is really good and i cant see any slow downs with it.

Statcounter doesnt have real time online visitor tracking like sitemeter does but it has some great features like viewing which files downloaded from our site etc.

However I really miss sitemeter and definitely consider moving back if they improve their service to avoid slow loading pages! :)
