New at Motigo Webstats: Live counter for your website

Thursday October 1st, 2009

Many webstats users have asked us for a graphic counter that would display the number of page views on their website. Today, we are happy to introduce this new feature: Here is the webstats live counter in multiple designs to choose from!

With this new widget you can display a summary of your visitor statistics directly on your website to keep you and your visitors always informed.


The live counter updates automatically so there is no need to reload the page to update the numbers. It is displayed to all visitors who have Adobe Flash Player version 9 or newer (which covers 97%-99% of all users). Even if some of your visitors don’t have Adobe Flash Player, there’s no reason to worry – ALL visitors will be registered  :)

Want to get a live counter straightaway? You only have to replace the counter code on your website:

1) Login at Motigo


2) Click on “Webstats” on your account overview


3) Select the counter for which you would like to have a live counter and click on “Show html code”:


4) Select the option Live Counter and copy the counter code. Now you only have to replace the counter code on your website with this one and the new live counter will be displayed on your site.


All new counters will get the live counter code as default. If you’d rather have the small webstats icon your page, you only have to select the “Small icon” option to get another code.

What are CAPTCHAs?

Thursday July 16th, 2009

A CAPTCHA is a validation code (combination of letters and numbers), which you are asked to enter before submitting information to a website. CAPTCHA is actually an acronym for “Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart.” CAPTCHAs display an image that people can detect, but computers cannot and it is used to keep malicious computer “bots” and other automated programs from using Web forms.


Actually a good idea, but there’s a lot of time and effort involved in it. Approximately 150.000 hours are spent every day by users around the world trying to decipher CAPTCHAs. Sometimes they use distorted images like wavy letters or a background with a strong pattern, which makes it difficult for humans to read them too. ReCAPTCHA, which we use on motigo, aims not only to make this easier but also to give this lost time a useful purpose.

reCAPTCHA uses real words instead of the code fragments used by conventional CAPTCHAs. The words used by reCAPTCHA are words, which computers could not read when digitalizing a book. So, when you type a reCAPTCHA, you are actually helping to digitalize a book. Read more on the reCAPTCHA website .
