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

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.

New on webstats: Exclude your own visits

With the new webstats feature “Exclude my own visits”, you can get more accurate visitor statistics by choosing the data that’s relevant for you. Up to now, your webstats counter registered all visits. The result: Your visits as webmaster were also registered amongst all the other visits. With our new feature you can now exclude your own visits and get more relevant statistics.

You’re wondering how does it work? It’s simple: It works by setting a cookie in your browser. However, if you delete your cookies or use a new browser or computer, you must log in and go to “My counters” to enable the function again.

How to exclude your own visits:

1. Login to motigo

2. Click on “Webstats”

3. Click on “Exclude my own visits”

This feature will only work for the most recent version of the counter code. It will not work for outdated or damaged counter codes.

Still have an old version of the code? You can get an updated code for your counter on your motigo account anytime:

This is how you get your counter code:

1. Login to motigo

2. Click on “Webstats”

3. Click on “show html code” under the counter’s name

4. Select the counter type (small icon or live counter)

5. Copy the code and paste it in your website

New ranking on the webstats catalogues

Tuesday June 23rd, 2009

Motigo has re-arranged the top lists of the webstats catalogue. Up to now, the ranking was based on the daily number of Page Views of a website. Starting from now, the ranking will be based of the number of daily Visits instead (you can find this value on your statistic page under “Visits”). Why did we do it? We consider this to be a much fairer basis for the ranking, since the number of visitors of a website is hard to manipulate and so we hope to have a fairer website ranking for all users.

Page Views and Visits

Page Views and Visits

Page Views and Visits – what is the difference?

Page views is the view of one page in your website – every time a page is loaded, this is considered a Page View. It doesn’t make any difference if it is the same user visiting the page or not.

Visits are the number of individual visits to your website. This statistic is based on recognition of a browser cookie in the visitor’s browser. Therefore, the visitor is not counted again if he has already been visiting the site within the last 24 hours.

You can read more about the difference between Page Views and Unique Visitors here.
