Was your website ever taken offline due to a recent surge in traffic? Google Analytics wouldn’t report the issue until a few hours later! What’s a web developer to do? W3Counter might be the needle in the haystack you’ve been waiting for.
W3Counter simply and intuitively displays your website statistics to you – LIVE. Unlike Google Analytics where you have to wait about 6-8 hours to realize you had a recent surge in traffic, W3Counter displays your website activity and who is on your website at that very moment.
Along with having all the standard web analytic features like referring sources and visitor demographics, you cant rack your RSS feeds as well as individual visitor details. For the full list of what this app can do, follow this link.
W3Counter is free if your website receives less than 5,000 page views a day. This make it a great analytics tool for a small blog, church website, or personal portfolio page. If you’re expecting more than 5,000 views a day, you’ll want to upgrade to the PRO account for $9.95 a month or $39.95 for 6 months.
All in all, a great alternative and feature-rich application to let you track your visitors.
